Participatory memory meeting – Szczebrzeszyn

Event program

On March 20 in Szczebrzeszyn, the Zapomniane Foundation conducted an event around the mass burial sites at the Jewish cemetery in Szczebrzeszyn. We conducted research (GPR) of mass burials in a historic cemetery. Thanks to them, the boundaries of four large, mass burials were marked. Over 2.3 thousand people were buried there. people. They were Jewish inhabitants of the city, murdered by the Germans in 1942.

On the initiative and in cooperation with the Place Attention Foundation, together with local memory activists and representatives of local government authorities, we marked this place with a symbolic wooden tombstone.
This is the beginning of a process aimed at permanently commemorating these burials.
