My interest in the legacy of Polish Jews is a natural consequence of my educational activities in the area of my region’s history. As I was conducting classes on the history of Łomża, I realized that young people know almost nothing about the Jewish community that lived in our town before the war. They were completely surprised when I told them that the first evidence of the Jewish community in Łomża date back to the 15th century and that during the period between the world wars Jews constituted a significant part of our town’s population. Unfortunately, the history of the Jews of Łomża is completely unknown to most people. This is why, through my activism, I try to bring back the memory of Łomża’s multicultural traditions. I work at High School no. 3 in Łomża, where I teach history and social studies. I am interested in the multiculturalism of Podlasie – in all its manifestations. Additionally, the fact that my school is located in the old Jewish hospital building cannot be overestimated as, in my opinion, it creates a natural bridge between the past and the need to commemorate Jewish inhabitants of Łomża.
