As part of the commemorations of the 80th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, the Galicia Jewish Museum has yet again joined the Daffodil Project.
Marek Edelman, the last leader of the Jewish Combat Organization, who survived war and occupation, for many years commemorated these events and each year he used to come to the Ghetto Heroes’ Monument to pay his tribute to those who perished during the uprising. Gradually, he was joined by more and more people with yellow flowers.
“The yellow daffodil is a symbol of collective memory. All of us who wanted to remember these events brought daffodils to the Warsaw district of Muranów,” said Paula Sawicka, a former academic, who, together with Marek Edelman, wrote the book “And There Was Love in the Ghetto.”
The memory of these events is very important to us. Our volunteers will be walking through the streets of Kazimierz, handing out yellow flowers and talking about the events of April 1943. Those who will visit our museum on this day, will also receive yellow flowers at our reception desk.
The Daffodil Project is part of the official commemorations of the 80th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, which are organized by the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews.
