Coordinates: 49°15′38″N 24°16′35″E / 49.26056°N 24.27639°E Zhuravno (Ukrainian: Журавно; Polish: Żurawno; Yiddish: זשיראוונע, Zhirovne) is an urban-type settlement in Zhydachiv Raion, Lviv Oblast of western Ukraine. Population: 3,598 (2013 est.).
Zhuravno gained recognition in Polish history because of the battle which took place nearby between the king of Poland, John III Sobieski, and the Turkish and Tatar invaders, a battle that ended in a peace treaty. The town was also the birthplace of the renowned Polish poet and author Mikołaj Rej in 1505.
The German forces occupied the territory in early July 1941. From the beginning of September to November 1942, the majority of Zhuravno’s Jews were deported to the Belzec extermination camp. About 160 Jewish specialists were purposefully left and confined to an open ghetto. In February and June 1943, they were murdered during two mass executions on the outskirts of the village carried out by German Gendarmerie and Ukrainian local police.
