On June 24, 1942 - 80 Jews who remained or returned to Dubiekco were rounded up, brought to the Jewish cemetery, shot, and buried in a mass grave. It was the beginning of the end of the last vestiges of a once bustling Jewish community. An estimated total of 160 Jews would be shot in the cemetery between June 1942 and July 1943. June 24, 2010 - The site of this tragedy, as well as the burial site many others murdered by the Nazis and brought to the cemetery, will be properly honored. The Jewish cemetery will be re-dedicated, and a plaque will be placed in the town center to acknowledge the "Lost Community" of the Jews of Dubiecko. It is the beginning of a new era of mutual education and respect between the remnants of that community and their families with the current Dubiecko community. If you wish to participate or donate, please (PLEASE!) contact Sharon Frant Brooks, coordinator.

"We are looking for Sponsoring donors willing to contribute $180 per person or business to underwrite the costs of this wonderful community learning opportunity. The more sponsorships we have to meet programming costs, the greater the donation that can be made to the American Joint Distribution Committee to restore and maintain a Jewish cemetery in a once vibrant Jewish community. These communities, once bright lights of Jewish life, were snuffed out by the Nazis from 1939 to 1943. As we rejoice with music and tradition, we can provide the dignity that once graced the hallowed ground of the Jewish Cemetery of Dubiecko, Poland, re-mark names for those who once had matzevot - grave stones - that now level the road to the San River, and where 160 innocent victims are buried in a mass grave.
All sponsors will be noted on all programs, promotional materials, and press releases. Sponsorship checks should be made out to:FJCC Rabbi's Discretionary Fund: Dubiecko Cemetery Fund and mailed with the name(s) as you would want it to appear in the program and advance releases to:Flemington Jewish Community Center, 5 Sergeantsville Road, Flemington, NJ 08822 Att.: Rabbi's Fund- Dubiecko Cemetery
