  1. City Mayor Wacław Kopiński
  2. Priest Wacław Krasuski
  3. Chairman Marceli Rożenek
  4. Chairman Saol Bromberg
  5. Members of the Council: Jan Witkowski, Antoni Pawłowski, Jan Eustachiewicz, Feliks Goniewski, Władysław Pawłowski, Chaskiel Goldman, Icek Frydman, Chaim Joel Lihtenberg, Szloma Mandertof, Jankiel Puterman.

Why we do this project

Until the Second World War our town was hosting a large Jewish community, which for over 300 years was an important part of the town structure.


What we do in the project

We plan to make interviews with senior inhabitants of our town, who knew Polish Jews personally before the war. We're going to look for more pictures presenting the social and scholar activities of Polish Jews of Łęczna. Finally we're going to distribute our newly acquired knowledge amongst our fellow students.


What are we proud of

We are especially proud of the fact, that we have an access to the large collection of iconographic archives, gathered by the former longtime teacher of our school, Stefania Pawlak. Fascinated by the history of Łęczna in the pre-war period, she was collecting relations and pictures, writing down the history of the city. We are also receiving old pictures from the inhabitants of Łęczna and the families tied to the city.
The picture on the cover of the educational materials repared by the Foundation for Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland also belongs to our collection. Its owner was a student of the Boleslaw Chrobry Primary School in Łęczna before the World War II.
