Częstochowa, just as in other places across Poland and Israel, commemorated the 78th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.
Several events were held to mark the occasion.



In an online lecture organised by the Częstochowa Public Library, Janusz Moskalik, together with Ilona Kowalska, spoke about Częstochowa during the Holocaust.

He also spoke about the bunker located at Stary Rynek 24 (the Old Market Square), where Hersz Frajman (whose photograph sits on the table) hid his family and neighbours, a total of twenty seven Jewish residents, during the liquidation of the “Big Ghetto”.

High schools in Częstochowa also marked the anniversary.

Yellow daffodils were distributed and worn
and the subject was discussed.

Deputy Chair of the Częstochowa City Council Ms. Yolanda Urbanska,

Chair of the Częstochowa branch of the TSKŻ
Mrs. Isabella Sobańska Klakowska
