It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Bogdan Jastrzębski, a Częstochowa Righteous Among the Nations. He died in Częstochowa at the age of 94.

His funeral will take place at 12 noon on Thursday 2nd January 2020 at Częstochowa’s Kule Cemetery. Members of the Częstochowa Branch of the TSKŻ will accompany him on his final journey.

Our condolences to his daughters Anna and Barbara, his five grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. In our Jewish tradition, we wish them and all his family long life and that they know no more sorrow.

Those of you who, during our past Reunions, attended the opening and subsequent ceremonies at the Częstochowa Umschlagplatz monument will have had the honour of meeting Bogdan where he was present as an honoured guest.

Both Bogdan and his mother, Maria, were honoured with the title of Righteous Among the Nations on 6th June 1993.
