About Wolf (Zeev) Gogol, הי״ד

Wolf (Zeev) was born circa 1923, in Różan, Mazovia, Poland.

In 1939, the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union resulted in the invasion of Poland by the two powers and its division between them. Rozhan was in the area designated by the Pact to fall within the Soviet sphere of influence. The Soviets placed that area within the Byelorussian SSR. However, two years later, Germany invaded the Soviet Union (Operation Barbarossa) and Rozhan and the whole area was captured. Rozhan Jews escaped through Slonim (now Belarus), but soon after, most of them (including the Gogols) and 70% of Slonim's Jews had been killed in a single Nazi operation (9,000 on 14 November 1941). The second mass murder of 8,000 Jews took place in 1942. In this massacre, Ficzel, his wife and their 2 younger children,Velvale (Ze'ev) and Chaya, were murdered. .

Today, there is not a single Jew left in Rozan or in Slonim.
