Żywiec- February 7, 2009

On 7 February 2009 The Lasting Memory Foundation organized an open meeting for inhabitants of Żywiec. The meeting included lecture concerning the common history of Poles and Jews.







The quests were shown a presentation of photographs from the trips following the traces of Jews in Poland. They had a chance to learn about towns inhabited by Jews before the war as well as the synagogues and cemeteries. The quests were also told the stories of people who recalled former Polish-Jewish life and those who saved Jews during the occupation. The presentation included the unmarked martyrdom and burial sites of Jews. The Lasting Memory Foundation intends to reach those places in order to preserve them and commemorate the victims. At the end of the lecture listeners got acquainted with Hebrew inscriptions and symbols on photographed matzevas. Among the guests were the members of Żywiec Land Lovers Association.
