1) We congratulate Dr. Anna Brzyska and the "Memory and Dialogue. Common History" Association on being awarded a Jewish Historical Institute of Poland grant of 10,000 PLN (~US$2,500) for their project of documentation of gravestones at the Jewish cemetery in Brzesko. Read more about their work (which we are pleased to assist) of protecting that cemetery.
2) In light of the Simhat Torah massacre and unceasing attacks upon Israel, we echo the words of our partner, FODŻ—the Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland: "In the face of the escalating spiral of violence, destruction and suffering, we express our support to the families of the victims [of the Hamas terror attacks] and to the broad sectors of Israeli society who are currently facing the ongoing attacks. ...We condemn the instigators and perpetrators of acts of terror and call for an immediate end to them."
3) Thanks to a group of generous descendants of Ciechanów, FODŻ has been able to begin the restoration of the monument at that town's Jewish cemetery. We still need additional funds to define the historic and present boundaries of the cemetery. Please help us by clicking on this Ciechanów link.
