Wola Zarczycka

(Łańcut Region, Lwów District)

Translated by Jerrold Landau

During the 15th century, it was a village under the ownership of the clergy, but that settlement was destroyed in the wake of the Tatar invasion. It was reconstructed during the second half of the 16th century as a village under the ownership of the nobility. In 1880, the population of Wola Zarczycka was 2,982, of whom 77 were Jews. In 1928, the population was 3,398, of whom 101 were Jews. A chapter of the Akiba youth movement functioned there in 1933. It seems that in January 1940, like the Jews from other settlements in the area, the local Jews were transferred to Leżajsk; and in September 1942, they were moved to the Tarnobrzeg Ghetto, and from there to the Belzec death camp.
