linia 2005-07-14 Koszalin

On 14th of July 2005 the Jewish cemetery in Koszalin was formally re-opened. The area of the cemetery was cleaned up thanks to the efforts of the city’s president, Mr. Mirosław Mikietyński, a priest Henryk Romanik, a photographer, Mr. Zdzisław Pacholski, and d Mr. Zbigniew Piłat. The Foundation supervised the erection of the new fence and prepared the text of the memorial plague (The Jewish Cemetery established in 1750, closed down in 1900. In 1938, during the “Cristal Night”, destroyed by the German Nazis. Out of 120 Koszalin Jews only few survived the Holocaust. Please respect the place of rest of the departed).
The ceremony of re-opening the cemetery was attended by the president of Koszalin, Mr. Mirosław Mikietyński, the bishop of the Koszalin-Kołobrzeg Diocese, Paweł Cieślik, a Koszalin priest, Henryk Romanik, and the CEO of the Foundation.
The guest of honour of the ceremony was Professor Leslie Baruch Brent from London. Professor Brent was born in Koszalin in 1925. Shortly before the outbreak of the war he had been sent to Great Britain and thus he survived. His family that had stayed in Koszalin was murdered by the Nazis. Professor Brent is one of the greatest immunologists of the 20th century, a close co-worker of Peter Medawar, who was awarded with the Nobel price in medicine in 1960.
