Preserving Memory (PL / EN)

02.07.2023 - 12.00 / Żydowskie Muzeum Galicja, ul. Dajwór 18

Organized by: Michael H. Traison Fund for Poland, Galicia Jewish Museum, Jewish Culture Festival

This year marks the 26th edition of “Preserving Memory”, the ceremony of honoring Poles preserving Jewish heritage in Poland.

Since the establishment of this unique award on the initiative of Michael H. Traison in 1998, several hundred non-Jewish Poles have been recognized for their work to preserve Jewish memory in Poland. This is an effort to recognize the selfless work of dedicated people who often work alone, on their own initiative, to ensure that Poland’s Jewish heritage will be remembered. Their heroic stories are a testament to their selfless devotion.
