Sarny

Sarny was the hometown of  Bronia Cimmerman.  She was born in Sarny in 1921. Bronia had a wonderful childhood there with her parents, sister and grandparents along with many friends.  In September 1939, the Soviet army captured a portion of Poland including Sarny.   Bronia along with her mother and sister fled in July 1941 as the Nazi troops advanced on Sarny.  A year later, some 14,000 Jews from Sarny and surrounding towns were massacred in the woods less than a mile from the local hospital.  To read Bronia’s story click here.  To learn more about Sarny, click here
