The training, organized by the Education Development Center, prepared us to hold meetings in Polish schools with Israeli youth. My head was filling with touching stories of unbelievable suffering, longing and grief for the lost homeland, and curiosity what is the Poland loved by these people’s ancestors like? The first meeting, held in 2008 with young people from Holon, marked the beginning of an annual school project, commemorating the history of Polish Jews, but also focusing on local history, because this was something new generations of students had no idea about. I also found my knowledge in this aspect insufficient. The visit was preceded by our discovering various traces of Jewish past in Żyrardów, learning about Jewish culture and heritage in our town, reading fragments of “Yizkor Book of Memory of the Żyrardów Jews”, which had been translated into English. The fact that young Poles felt proud that they are bringing back the forgotten memory motivated me even more.
