On September 8, 1939, Radom fell under German occupation, and shortly afterwards, as the capital of the Radom District, it became part of the General Government. Initially, life went on relatively normally, but gradually the Germans began to implement their sinister policies, with the Jews being the biggest victims. A two-part ghetto was established in Radom, from which the Jews were gradually deported, mainly to Treblinka. The remaining residents had to deal with roundups, forced labor, torture, and death, especially if they were involved in underground activities. The Germans looted Polish citizens, deported valuable items, changed street and square names, and decorated the city with Nazi symbols.
