In Adamów the Lasting Memory Foundation commemorated the place of execution and burial of 20 Jews, men, women and children murdered in 1943. The ceremony next to the Victims’ grave was attended by representative of Chancellery of the President of Poland, clergy, authorities, a group of 40 people from Israel and local residents. The participants paid tribute to the victims through prayers, poems and songs.

The ceremony was attended by: representative of the Chancellery of the President of Poland Jakub Beczek, Chief Rabbi of Poland Michael Schudrich, Catholic Bishop Mieczysław Cisło, Mayor of Adamów Commune, parish priest of Krasnobród, delegation from a school in Szewnia Górna, representative of the Forest Inspectorate of Zwierzyniec, a group of 40 employees of the air industry in Israel and local residents.

The participants laid flowers at the memorial. The Rabbi and Bishop prayed together. Afterwards, the story was told of the tragic events that took place in Adamów during the war. The Jews, most of whom came from Krasnobród and also from Łódz, Warsaw and Jozefów Biłgorajski, were forced to work on a German farm. In the summer of 1943, the Jews were gathered in one building. A pit was dug out in a gorge in a local forest at the German command. The Germans led there the Jews one by one, with children first, and then shot them to death. The grave remained unmarked for 76 years.
At the end of the ceremony the students from the school in Szewnia Górna recited touching poems and the guests from Israel sang a song.
