Description

Dąbie [ˈdɔmbʲɛ] (German: Eichstädt) is a town on the Ner River in central Poland with 2200 inhabitants, situated in Koło County in Greater Poland Voivodeship. The town was first mentioned in 1232. Municipal status was granted in 1423. Before World War II, about 1,000 Jews lived in Dąbie. After the German occupation, they were confined to a ghetto in summer, 1940. Some were sent to labor camps, but most were sent directly to Chełmno extermination camp in December 1941 where they were gassed in specially adapted vans. Only a few Dabie Jews survived the war.
