We want to commemorate our Jewish neighbors who have been co-creating Zamość for generations, as well as people from other cities and countries who ended up in the Zamość ghetto. Most of them were murdered in german death camps. 81 years ago, on October 16, 1942, the Germans ordered the survived Jews to walk to the ghetto in Izbica. This march, which cost many people their lives, is the symbolic end of the presence of the Jewish community in our city.

The initiative is open to everyone! We do not send individual or official invitations. We ask for the presence of all the people who want to commemorate the Holocaust and the tragic events from WWII.

We will soon announce further events as part of the commemoration of the Holocaust of Jews in Zamość.

Social Initiative to Commemorate the Holocaust of Jews in Zamość:
Marek Kołcon, historian
Janusz Kupczyk, City Councilor of Zamość,
Daniel Sabaciński from the Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage
