Statistical information
Plozk (Odessa Oblast)

Plozk (Ukrainian Плоцьк ; Russian Плоцк , German Plozk , Romanian Plosca or Ploțc ) is a village in Bessarabia in today's Ukraine ( Odessa Oblast ). It is located south of the city of Arzys and forms together with the neighboring village Vynohradivka (Ukrainian Виноградівка) a district council.


The place lies in the historical landscape of Bessarabia . The area of ​​Bessarabia came in 1812 in the Treaty of Bucharest from the Ottoman vassal state of Moldova together with the Budschak to the Russian Empire . The new acquisition was treated as a colonization area and initially assigned to the Governor General of New Russia . In a manifesto of 1813, Tsar Alexander I called German colonists into the country to colonize the newly won steppe areas in New Russia. Here, German emigrants founded the place as village number 23 in 1839 . It was initially named Draguli after the valley in which it was founded . Because a large part of the emigrants came from the area around the city of Płock , which is now in Poland, the inhabitants decided to rename the place to Plotzk , the German name of the city. The place belongs to the 24 Bessarabian German mother colonies. They were established by immigrants, while daughter colonies were later established by residents of the mother colonies.

In 1918 the place became a part of Romania and remained so until the Soviet occupation in 1940 and again from 1941 to 1945.

After the Soviet occupation of Bessarabia in the summer of 1940, covered by the Hitler-Stalin Pact , the Bessarabian German residents joined the resettlement to the German Reich in autumn 1940 under the motto Heim ins Reich . A small Russian minority remained in the village. After the end of World War II, Russians and Ukrainians settled in the place.
