A German police unit arrived in Olkusz on July 31, 1940, and gathered all the Jewish men in the main square. The Jews were forced to lie on the ground while the policemen and members of the SD registered them. The Germans beat the Jews, shooting one of them. In order to further humiliate them, Rabbi Moshe Yitzhak Hagerman was forced to don his tallith and tefillin (phylacteries) that had been defiled, and to stand barefoot and pray next to the prostrate men of the Jewish community.
