The audience were told about the events by the eye-witness and Miriam's age-mate – Ryszard Wołosiuk. Among the participants of the meeting were also Zbigniew Niziński of the Lasting Memory Foundation and Adam Panasiuk of the “Polesie” Association.

Israel – March 21, 2011

From 21 March to 3 April Zbigniew Niziński and Daniel Starzyński from the board of the Lasting Memory Foundation were in Israel, visiting the Survivors of the Holocaust and collecting the accounts of their fates during the Nazi occupation in Poland. Among other places, we visited the Israeli resting homes and heard the memories of the last witnesses who recalled the Extermination of their home towns and families. They also created lists of the victims buried in the nameless graves. The collected materials serve as a complement of the accounts of the Polish witnesses concerning the unmarked mass graves of murdered Jews as well as the attempts to rescue them from death. The Foundation board took part in the marathon in Jerusalem, dedicated to the Memory of the Survivors and Victims of the Holocaust.
