2020-06-11 "Witness" - March of the Living exhibition

From June 12, 2020, an outdoor exhibition entitled "Witness"  will be presented in the courtyard of the “Synagogue” Center of the Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland, at Pereca 14 st, in Zamość.


The exhibition was prepared by the initiative of the International March of the Living. It consists of 16 panels with photos and descriptions in Polish, English and Hebrew. It was first presented in 2015 at the building of the United Nations. Later it was presented at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum, in front of the POLIN Museum in Warsaw, the synagogue in Budapest. Now it came to Zamość. The exhibition can be seen in front of the Zamość synagogue until October 2020.

The exhibition title was inspired by the words of Judy Weissenberg Cohen, addressed to the participants of the March of the Living in 1997: “I never had a chance to say goodbye to my mother. We didn't know we had to say goodbye... I am an old woman today and I never made peace with the fact I never had that last hug and kiss. They say "when you listen to a witness, you become a witness too." I am only asking you to work for a world... where nobody will ever have to live memories like mine ever again”.


"March of the Living" is an educational program about the Holocaust. The initiative was established in 1988 and every year thousands of people from many countries come to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum. The March of the Living is the opposite of the "death marches" organized during the war by the Germans for the relocation labor camps prisoners. The idea of ​​the program is to fight  indifference to other people's suffering, racism and injustice.

This year, the organization of the March was not possible due to the pandemic, which is why we are even more pleased by the exhibition in front of the "Synagogue" Center in Zamość.


The exhibition is available during the business hours of the FODŻ "Synagogue" Center.
