I was born and raised in Wysokie Mazowieckie. Ever since I can remember, I would be fascinated by walking amongst mysterious headstones and the silence of the Jewish necropolis that had been forlorn for years. The local people would call the cemetery “the Jewish grove”. But it was only during my history studies at the university that I truly became interested in Jewish matters, while writing my MA theses about the history of Wysokie Mazowieckie parish. This was when I rediscovered “my Jewish cemetery”. This resurgence of my interest coincided with re-dedication of the site. I decided that it would make sense to remind local residents – and especially the young generation (I work in a school) – about the Jews that had once lived here. Since mid-19th century, Jews comprised the majority of the town’s residents, contributing to its economic and cultural development; a fact that some people choose to overlook. I am a history and social science teacher in the Professional Development Center in Wysokie Mazowieckie. In my free time, I work as a guide to Podlasie region.
