On March 14, 2018, the Chamber of the Senate adopted a law on the establishment of the National Day of Remembrance of Poles who saved Jews from the Holocaust during World War Two. According to the Act, this day will be celebrated every March 24 and will have a state character.
On March 24, 2019, the Ulma Family Museum of Poles Saving Jews in World War II in Markowa joins the state celebrations. It is a special day because it is the 75th anniversary of the death of Wiktoria and Józef Ulma and six of their children. Wiktoria at the time of death was in advanced pregnancy. Along with the Polish family from Markowa, an eight-member group of Jews from the Goldman family died, which most probably from the end of 1942, found shelter in the Polish home. At dawn on March 24, 1944, the whole group was brutally murdered by German gendarmes from the Łańcut post. On March 24, 2019, at the initiative of the Marshal’s Office of the Podkarpackie Voivodeship, the Ulma Family Museum of Poles Saving Jews in World War II in Markowa and the Markowa Municipality, a number of undertakings will be organized to commemorate Poles who help representatives of the Jewish community during the German occupation. One of them will be the awarding of state decorations given by the
President of the Republic of Poland. In addition, it is planned to unveil new tablets with the names of Poles saving Jews. There will also be a homage paid to Poles who help Jews and the Ulma family from Markowa. On this day, the Ulma Family Museum of Poles Saving Jews in World War II in Markowa will be hosted by representatives of Polish families rescuing Jews and witnesses of history.
