As it is stated in The Encyclopedia of Jewish Life Before and During the Holocaust, already in the 17th century there were followers of Judaism living in Zakliczyn. This was, however, a relatively small community, no more than three hundred people, which made up 20-25% of the hamlet's populace.
In June 1942, a ghetto was established in Zakliczyn. Around 1500 people from Zakliczyn and the neighboring villages were held in it. In September and November 1942, the Nazis transported Jews from Zakliczyn to the extermination camp for Jews in Bełżec. A group of 70 people was left in the city, only to be murdered a few months later, in April 1943.
