Light of Remembrance in the windows of Płock. International Holocaust Remembrance Day
On January 27, the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp is commemorated by the International Holocaust Remembrance Day. On this day, we especially remember the Jewish residents of our city who were murdered in the Płock ghetto, in Imielnica, in the Działdowo transit camp, in the Warsaw ghetto, in the Auschwitz camp, in Treblinka…
As every year, the Shalom Foundation invites everyone to commemorate the victims of Jewish origin, murdered during World War II by Nazi Germany, at 1:00 p.m. at the Monument to the Heroes of the Ghetto in Warsaw.
On this day, the “Light of Remembrance” action also takes place, during which at 6 p.m. you can light a candle in the window of your home for the murdered Jewish people. We encourage you to participate in the action and turn on the Light of Remembrance also in your window here in Płock.
