JANUARY 22 - DAILY CHRONICLES OF HISTORY

JANUARY 22

1775

Marshal Oscar von Lubomirski expelled Jews from Warsaw, Poland. (Following the first partition of Poland in 1772, a rise in organized street fights against the Jews were occurring. Three years later, there was a partial expulsion of Jews from Warsaw. Many Jews in Warsaw participated in the Polish Uprising against the Russians during the partition period and were killed when Russian troops massacred the Jewish civilian population. In 1796, Warsaw became part of Prussia and Jews were subject to Juden Reglements, which allowed only Jews, living in Warsaw prior to 1796, to remain in the city.)


1863

The January Uprising began. It took place in the former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (present-day Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Latvia, parts of Ukraine, western Russia) against the Russian Empire. It began on January 22, 1863 and lasted until the last insurgents were captured in 1865.


1945

Four squadrons of RAF Spitfires destroyed a factory in Alblasserdam that manufactured liquid oxygen for German rockets. The reconnaissance squadron attempted to locate other targets, but only two were destroyed. Another installation at Looduinen was attacked several times between February 3 and 9, 1945, and though only a third of the bombs hit the target, the factory was destroyed. Alblasserdam is a town in western Netherlands, in the province of South Holland.
