The Lviv pogroms, 1941

The Lviv pogroms were massacres of Jews from the Ukrainian city of Lwow (known as Lviv today). The massacres were perpetrated by Ukrainian nationalists from 30 June to 2 July 1941, and from 25 to 29 July 1941, during the Wehrmacht’s attack on Soviet-occupied eastern Poland in World War II. Approximately 6,000 Jews, especially women lost their lives during these massacres.
