(Luke 10: 33 – 34)
A PASSAGE MARKED BY JÓZEF OR WIKTORIA ULMA
“But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion. He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him.”

BASIA ROSENBERG FROM PRZEWORSK, ENTRY IN A PRIVATE JOURNAL, DATED SEPTEMBER 2, 1939
“The war. It was continuously spoken about, but no one believed it would actually break out. (…) My nerves are strung. How can I stand it? People are sealing their windows, everyone wants to defend themselves, but does not know how to do it. Oh, God! Have mercy upon us. What comes next...?”

EDWARD SZPYTMA FROM MARKOWA
“In bright days, when it did not rain (…) smoke plumes could be seen – they came from fires made by the fugitive Jews who wanted to get some warmth, baked potatoes. Before the war, such a view used to make one think of a good time, but now these evenings were not fun – they were a life necessity, a daily struggle for survival.”

May 12, 1943 Szmul Zygielbojm’s suicide

Just before his death Szmul Zygielbojm confessed, ‘With my death I wish to express the strongest protest against the passivity with which the world is watching and allowing the extermination of the Jewish people. (…) Since I was unable to do anything during my lifetime, perhaps by my death I shall help to break down the indifference of those who have the possibility now, at the last moment, to save those Polish Jews still alive from certain annihilation’.

May 12, 2008 Irena Sendler died

Social activist, socialist and member of Żegota; she worked in the Children’s Section. Together with her co-workers, she rescued nearly 2,500 children of Jewish origin, smuggling them out of the ghetto and hiding them in orphanages and with Polish families.
