In October 1940, the Nazis created in Skierniewice a ghetto whose limits were the southern part of the Square and Rawska, Stanisławska, Strykowska, Piotrkowska, Barania, Poprzeczna, Krótka and Floriana Streets. People of Jewish origin from Skierniewice and displaced persons from other places such as Łódź, Zgierz, Włocławek or Brzezin were all imprisoned here. In last days of existence of the ghetto, there were about seven thousand people kept here. Its liquidation took place on 23 January 1943. The prisoners were deported through Rawa Mazowiecka to Warszawa, from where they were sent to gas chambers in Treblinka.
