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.
