Commemorating the Jewish community of Białowieża

Grant for Jacek Kuroń Educational Foundation for commemorating the Jewish community of Białowieża

Project begun by Katarzyna Winiarska and the Jacek Kuroń Educational Foundation. They mounted an information board on the main street of Białowieża, in what was a Jewish neighborhood before the war. They placed a monument at a former gravel pit in a forest near the city where 77 Jewish men and boys were executed on August 10, 1941. The Foundation also organized a commemoration of the 78th anniversary of the execution and deportation of Jews. Descendants of Jewish families from Białowieża and local residents took part.
