Katzes from Sokal who moved to Germany and were victims of the Shoah.

Katzes who remained in Sokal victims of the Shoah.

Aside from the known Katz relatives originally from Sokal who died in the Shoah, there are numerous Katzes from Sokal who never left and persished in the Shoah. The list below contains 38 names but is most likely incomplete. For example, many female victims may have been remembered under their married names, making the search impossible. Conversely, some of the names, coming from different lists, may be duplicates.

For the names listed below, the family connection is not confirmed; however a genealogical researcher from Lviv claimed that all Katzes in Sokal originally came from a single family. It is quite likely that at least the family of Herz Wolf Katz below were indeed relatives - most likely descendants of Herz Wolf Katz (1856-1904).

New Search (2019) for Katzes from Sokal in Yad Vashem for Sokal:

Note: some of these names may be duplicates. I am including them as the Yad Vashem data includes additional information not available in the Yizkor book such as birth dates. I have decided to err on the side of inclusivity at least for now, to make sure I don't leave any potential relative out of this list of victims.
