We are proud to share the heart-warming story of School of Dialogue alumni from Płock, who participated in the program in 2017 and now continue their involvement in preserving the memory of Jewish community of their town. Inspired and supervised by Dorota Cieślik, Forum’s educator who conducted workshops in Płock in 2017, they collaboratively painted a mural marking the place of Jewish cemetery, established in the end of 16th century and destroyed by Nazis during the war.
“Am I afraid that the mural will be vandalized by chauvinistic graffiti? Well, I’m afraid it’ll appear,” Dorota admits. “Such is the fate of street art pieces, they interact with the street and people using it. However, I know for sure that it will be well taken care of – it’s close to school and it will have its own guardians.”
