The Izbica Ghetto was a Jewish ghetto created in Izbica in occupied Poland during World War II, serving as a transfer point for deportation of Jews from Poland, Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia to Belzec and Sobibor extermination camps.

SS-Hauptsturmführer Kurt Engels was the commandant of the camp. In the camp, the Jews from Germany were differentiated from Polish Jews by the colour of the obligatory star of David signs (yellow for German vs blue for Polish Jews).

Many victims succumbed to typhus due to poor sanitary conditions in the ghetto. Already in the early phase of the ghetto, the Nazis destroyed the local Jewish cemetery and the tombstones were desecrated and used to build a prison.

Besides being sent to the extermination camps, approximately 4500 Jews were murdered by Nazis at the cemetery. The Jewish cemetery in Izbica is being reconstructed by the Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland.
