Ceremony commemorating seven men aged about 30 and a woman about 20, Jewish escapees from the Bialystok ghetto
It was our first memorial ceremony carried out as part of the NeDiPa project: Negotiating Difficult Pasts. We would like to thank our project partners FestivALT & Urban Memory Foundation for their help and support.
Together with the local community, we commemorated the memory of seven men aged around 30 and a woman around 20, Jewish refugees from the Białystok ghetto, murdered in the second half of 1943. The commemorative ceremony is the result of a fruitful cooperation with the local authorities of the Szudzialowo Commune, Supraśl Forest District and local primary school in Szudziałowo.
The ceremony was attended by the representatives of the local government and the authorities of the neighboring communes, representatives of three denominations, young people from the school in Szudziałowo, representatives of Jewish organizations, including the Jewish Religious Community in Warsaw, and most of all the inhabitants of Szudziałowo and the surrounding towns and villages.
The NeDiPa - Negotiating Difficult Pasts program is implemented thanks to the support of the European Union as part of the Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values (CERV) program
