The road to reconciliation begins with remembering.
Today, the landscape of Poland is devoid of the once vibrant, and as some say, “normal life,” that existed before the Holocaust, when Poles and Jews lived together rather peaceably.
During the Holocaust some 6 million Jews were murdered during the Nazi occupation.
3.5 million of those murdered were Polish Jews.
Today, scattered across Poland, 1,200 Jewish cemeteries, as well as mass burial sites yet to be found, speak of those who were lost and of that which was lost.
The Shoah (Holocaust) took the generations of Jews who would have remembered and honored their heritage. The Matzevah Foundation remembers by educating people regarding the Shoah and by bringing to light that which was hidden.
