Aleksandrów Kujawski [alɛkˈsandruf kuˈjafskʲi] ( Loudspeaker.svg listen ) (Polish : until 1879 Trojanów, 1879-1919 Aleksandrów Pograniczny) is a small town in Poland, in Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship. It is situated about 18 km south-east of Toruń. It is the seat of Aleksandrów County, and also of Gmina Aleksandrów Kujawski (although it is not part of the territory of that gmina).

Contents

The town was founded in 1862, and got its municipal rights in 1879.

During the German occupation of Poland (World War II), in October 1939–January 1940, the Germans murdered many Poles from the town in the nearby Odolion forest (see Nazi crimes against the Polish nation ). [1] In October 1939, Germans arrested five Salesians from the town, [1] and in 1940 they expelled 735 Poles, whose houses, workshops and offices were then handed over to German colonists as part of the Lebensraum policy.
