Already on September 8, 1939, Radom was under German occupation, and shortly after, as the capital of the Radom District, it became part of the General Government. Initially, life was relatively normal, but gradually the Germans began implementing their malicious policies, with the Jews being the main victims. A two-part ghetto was established in Radom, from which 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 adorned the city with Nazi symbols.
