The pandemic should not limit memory and its simple gestures. Anniversary events are organized in the calendar of our cyclical functioning around the memory of people, places and events. Through the prism of this calendar, it is easier for us to understand the present and attempt to see the future.
The 78th anniversary of the liquidation of the ghetto in Kraków / Podgórze, as every year, was commemorated by a march from Square of the Heroes of the Ghetto to the site of the former KL Płaszów camp.
This year, a special spontaneously organized march. A march that proved that in the absence of formal and institutionalized memory, there is an even more important one, a living and conscious memory of the city’s inhabitants.
Thank you to everyone marching in their pandemic bubbles towards Płaszów. Special thank you to the initiators of the March.
About the Author
I hold an MA in International Relations and Politics and an MA in Middle East Studies, both from the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. I am a PhD in the field of Political Studies, writing on the changing patterns of Holocaust and Auschwitz memory. I am a scholar of comparative genocide studies and author of a book "Auschwitz after Auschwitz". I work professionally as Jewish genealogist. I am a guide and genealogist through complicated matters and sites. My research company Polin Travel was initiated in 2000 to merge three of my passions: Jewish history, genealogy, and guiding. The last 20 years brought many explorations, genealogical finds, and emotions that proved to be transformative for me and my clients. Pursuing an academic career I don't lose sight of moving my travel activities on-line with first successful on-line guided tours, on-line genealogy, supported with customized films, and lectures. During the COVID pandemic I initiated a new visual history and historical site interpretation project SKY HERITAGE PICTURES.
