2006-06-23 Slupsk - ceremony unveiling the monument


Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland organized a ceremony unveiling the monument commemorating the Jewish community of the city of Slupsk (pre-war Stolp).
The monument was founded by the descendants of Rabbi Max Joseph, the Rabbi of Slupsk over the period of 1902-1936, and erected by the Foundation in cooperation with the Municipality. It is situated at Niedzialkowskiego 6 St., at the site where the Slupsk synagogue had been located, before it was destroyed by the Nazis in 1938, during Kristallnacht. The monument is a reconstructed section of the synagogue’s fence, with memorial plaques in Polish, English, German and Hebrew.
The ceremony was attended by Rabbi Max Joseph’s family, Rabbi Robert Samuels, representatives of the Jewish community, the President of the City of Slupsk and his Deputy, the Consul General of the Republic of Germany, a representative of the local Bishop and by the CEO of the Foundation. A letter send by the Ambassador of the State of Israel to Poland was read. The ceremony was also witnessed by a crowd of Slupsk citizens and students from local schools.
The monument, erected in the very center of the city, is an important testimony of engagement in the task of commemorating the Jewish community, which for centuries had been an integral part of Slupsk’s social, religious and cultural life.
