LOCATION

Kock is a small town in Lublin province. It is situated about 130 kilometres away to south-east from Warsaw and 50 kilometres away to north from Lublin. The town is boarded with two rivers the Tyśmienica and the Wieprz. The international road E19 runs through the commune.


HISTORY

At the beginning of Polish state, in 10th and 11th century, Kock was probably a settlement which was a property of the noble Socieh.Then, in the twelfth century Kock came into possession of bishops of Płock and in year 1233 it was joined to already existing Łukow district. Five years later, Bolesław Wstydliwy- the king of Poland set Kock free from jurisdiction “Castelani nostril de Lucow”, which caused intensive development of Kock. In the year 1417, Kock was given the City Rights. At the beginning of the sixteenth century, the town became Mikołaj Firlej’s property. Next, his son Jan Firlej inherited these grounds. Firlej’s family founded in Kock many useful things like a school and many other buildings for people. In the year 1648 Kock was attacked by Bohdan Chmielnicki that was the end of magnificence of the town. One of the most famous people born in Kock was Ludwik Osiński (1775-1838) who was a poet, a director of The National Theatre and a literature professor. The crucial meaning for the town development had Anna Jabłonowska’s deeds. In the period of her ruling she built a church, a palace and town hall. She initiated new means of management which were written in a local constitution for settled nobles.She was a patriot. After her death, Kock was ruled by a few owners. The personality of Berek Joselewicz is also associated with Kock – a Polish Jew, a soldier and a real patriot. Jews ruled Kock quite smoothly and both populations lived in peace and agreement but the situation changed since Hitler’s soldiers killed Jews. Our common history is commemorated in only few places: A House of “cadyk” Mendel Morgenstern and Jewish cemetery. During the period of annexation Kock was developing slowly, but the number of its inhabitants was growing quickly. Many craftsmen came here to set up new factories and some more smaller places for people to work. The inhabitants of Kock were patriots, they took part in national revolts. The town faced bloody episodes of January and November revolts. 79 insurgents are buried on the cemetery in Kock. As inhabitants took part in national revolts, town lost its city rights in 1870, but in year 1919 it regained them again. The town was an important place of battle with guerillas. The battle in 1939 between “SGO polesie” and German forces, which took place near Kock, is very important for polish people. During the occupation some military organizations were working in Kock, for example: AK and WiN.
