A menorah-shaped monument was unveiled Sunday in Kielce to remember the Polish city's 20,000 Jews killed in the Holocaust, on the 65th anniversary of the liquidation of the Nazi-era ghetto, a news agency reported. Poland's chief rabbi, Michael Schudrich, led a prayer for the dead in the presence of the city mayor, residents and representatives of the German and Israel embassies during a ceremony marking the unveiling of the steel monument, the Polish news agency PAP reported. The Nazis - who occupied Poland during World War II - sent Jews in three transports from Sept. 19-24, 1942, to the death camp of Treblinka for extermination. The Nazis also killed between 1,200 and 1,500 Jews, including pregnant women and children, on the spot, PAP said.
