On March 24 we celebrated the National Day of Remembrance of Poles Rescuing Jews under German occupation. The day is connected with the tragic fate of the Ulma family and that of the Jews whom they were hiding in Markowa in the Rzeszów region. In 1944, as the result of being denounced, they were murdered by the Germans.
Due to the epidemiological threat, the celebration of the National Day of Remembrance of Poles Rescuing Jews under German occupation was limited to laying floral tributes on the grave of the Ulma family at the parish cemetery in Markowa, at the monument of the Ulma family in the the Orchard of Remembrance and the monument dedicated to the memory of Jewish victims of the Holocaust and their anonymous Polish helpers on the museum’ square. The ceremony was attended by director Dr. Anna Stróż-Pawłowska and the head of the Markowa Commune, Mirosław Mac.
