Memory Activism: the report
The study emerged out of the need to address the lack of information about the current status and scope of work of memory activists involved in Jewish heritage initiatives in Poland. This pilot study will allow us to map and estimate the scale of their work, the level of engagement and their motivations as well as good practices, challenges they’re facing and their needs against a backdrop of European activism.Warszawa

The Order of Violence. Difficult heritage of Getto Benches in Polish Universities.
The Ghetto Benches (segregated seating in Universities between Jews and Non-Jews) was an institutionalized form of discrimination against the Jewish community inspired by the activities during the interwar period of the right-wing nationalist organizations: All-Poland Youth, Camp of Greater Poland, and the National Radical Camp. In the 1930s, ethno-religious segregation of students of Jewish origin was intensified, for example, by forcing them to take certain seats in lecture halls.

Memory and Halakha (event in Polish)
Zachor (Hebrew for "remember") is used nearly 200 times in the Hebrew Bible, which is the foundation of the Jewish legal system. This was calculated by the historian Yosef Haim Yerushalmi, who in his book "Zakhor: Jewish History and Jewish Memory" put forward the thesis that it was the commandment of remembrance that played a key role in the process of preserving identity during the centuries of Jewish dispersion in the Diaspora.Online
The need for commemoration took on a new meaning after the Holocaust. However, it is not always obvious how to cultivate the memory of the victims in accordance with their tradition and halacha, i.e. Jewish religious law.
