Before World War II, about 1,000 Jews lived in Dąbie. After the German occupation, they were confined to a ghetto in summer of 1940. Some were sent to labor camps, but most were sent directly to Chełmno extermination camp in December 1941 where they were gassed in specially adapted vans. Only a few Dąbie Jews survived the war.
