For the fourth time in history, the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews awarded individuals, institutions, and organizations preserving the memory of Polish Jews during the POLIN Award Gala. Among the 7 nominees were the Leaders of Dialogue: Kamila Klauzińska from Zduńska Wola, Łukasz Parus from Zagórów, and Katarzyna Winiarska from Białowieża.
Selected from among over a hundred candidates, the nominees are recognized for their individual contributions towards building mutual understanding and respect between Poles and Jews. The main prize was awarded to Tomasz Wiśniewski, an activist working tirelessly to preserve the memory of Podlasie’s Jewish communities, while Dariusz Popiela, of the Shtetl of Tsanz, and Magdalena Lewkowicz, a teacher and activist from Mrągowo received honorable mentions.
Recognizing that the work of all of the nominees embodies Forum’s mission, we would like to congratulate them all: winners, nominees, and candidates! We appreciate your tireless and important work!
