Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland together with the Peacework association carried out cleanup works on the grounds of the Jewish cemetery in Szczebrzeszyn. Participating were  students from the Hendrix College (Arkansas, USA) and from the Polish Olimpic Champions High School in Szczebrzeszyn.

American students were participating in a study tour, a first one prepared together by the Foundation and Peacework www.peacework.org within the framework of a project which aim is to promote knowledge about Jewish heritage and history in Central and Eastern Europe among American students. The project enriches the participants' experience of history, informs their memory and understanding of the Holocaust, as well as political and cultural changes that have transpired since the World War II in that part of Europe. Students will also be involved in a voluntary service of restoring a Jewish cemetery. We believe that the volunteer activities reinforce the memories and life-long changes in attitudes and cultural sensitivities.
