The Orchard of Remembrance at the Ulma Family Museum of Poles Saving Jews refers on the one hand to Józef Ulma’s passion for fruit horticulture, and on the other – to the Garden of the Righteous at Yad Vashem in Israel.

Along the Orchard’s alleys plaques are placed with names of cities, towns and villages located in the territory of Poland in 1939, where Poles risked their own lives to save Jews during the German occupation. The list includes only those localities where people awarded with the title of the Righteous Among the Nations were active; places have not been taken into account where help was given by other, often anonymous heroes, whom we also bring to remembrance on this occasion.

In the centre of the Orchard there is the Monument of the Ulma Family funded by the local community on the 60th anniversary of the Markowa murder.
