Solotvin - Holocaust

With the outburst of World War II in 1939, Solotvin was occupied by the Red (Soviet) Army. However, in the first days of the Soviet occupation there were no authorities in the town and Ukrainians began to rob Jewish houses and shops. The plunder came to an end when a Jewish self-defense unit arrived from neighboring Nadworna (Israel Carmi, "Tahat ha-kibush ha-sovieti," Sefer Nadworna, 150).

Most of the local Jews were exterminated in September 1942. Some of the Jews were sent to Stanisławów ghetto; and some of them were probably sent to the Belzec camp (Pinkas Kehilot, 350).
