Website of the current synagogue building, with histories of the Jews of Ostrow.

The Jewish cemetery was destroyed by the Germans.

The list is ONLY of households with membership in the Ostrowo Synagogue in 1896 . See the sidebar for Related Projects for a different but related project that is for ALL Jewish residents of the town over time. The 1896 roster is a snapshot in time-1896-whereas the Town project is unlimited in time.
Please only add profiles that are on this list, which are heads of families. Yes, I do recognize that this biases this project to men.
