Parczew belongs to Lesser Poland region; the town lies 60 kilometers north of Lublin, 70 kilometers south of Biala Podlaska. It has a rail station on the secondary-importance line from Lublin to Łuków, inaugurated in 1898; the settlement of Parczew existed since the 12th century, lying near then-eastern border of the Kingdom of Poland. In 1401, it received Magdeburg rights town charter from King Władysław Jagiełło; the union of Poland and Lithuania helped Parczew to develop. The town was conveniently located on one of the routes joining the capitals of the two united nations - Kraków and Vilnius. In the Union of Horodło, Parczew was designated to be the location of Polish - Lithuanian councils; the town emerged as one of the centers of political life of the two nations. Parczew was visited by all kings of the Jagiellon dynasty, the last council took place here in 1564.

Parczew had a defensive wall, with three gates, a royal residence, where Polish kings stayed on their way to and from Vilnius. The town was the seat of a starosta, with a town hall located on the market square, two bath houses, four mills and breweries. In the 16th century, it had three Roman Catholic churches, one Orthodox church, a synagogue, a school and a hospital. In 1500 and 1544, Parczew was destroyed in Crimean Tatars raids, in 1655, it was seized and burned by the Swedes. After the wars of the mid-17th century, the town did not recover until the reign of Stanisław August Poniatowski; until the Partitions of Poland, Parczew belonged to Lesser Poland’s Lublin Voivodeship, since 1815, it was part of Russian-controlled Congress Poland. In 1898, the rail line from Lublin, via Parczew, to Łuków was built, in the Second Polish Republic, the town had the population of 10,000. During World War II, Parczew was a center of anti-German resistance. In local forests, numerous Home Army and Armia Ludowa units operated.

On July 22, 1944, Parczew was freed by the Home Army, in the summer 1945, anti-Communist unit of Leon Taraszkiewicz attacked local Urzad Bezpieczenstwa prison. In 1955, Parczew County was created, in 2001, the town celebrated its 600th anniversary. Among points of interest there are: former synagogue, neo-Gothic Collegiate. An organized Jewish community existed in the town since the early 16th century. Just before the outbreak of World War II the Jewish community numbered 5,000, more than half of the town's population. During the German occupation of Poland the Jews were first confined to a ghetto crammed with inhabitants of neighbouring settlements as well. In the course of the Holocaust, on August 19, 1942 the Nazi German Reserve Police Battalion 101 aided by the Trawniki men rounded up and deported 3,000 Jews to Treblinka extermination camp; the battalion returned to Parczew with the same company of Hiwis in October 1942. There were 5,000 more Jews in the ghetto, they were massacred in a mass shooting action and deported, at which point the town was declared Judenfrei.

The Parczew partisans anti-Nazi fighter group operated in the forests around the town, which included Jewsih men and women who managed to escape the slaughter. After the war, Parczew was one of the few historic shtetls in which an attempt was made to re-establish the Jewish community. About 200 Jews were inhabiting the town by early 1946 until a pogrom was initiated by local anti-communist partisans in which three Jews were killed; as a result, the Jews fled to bigger cities.
