The 70th anniversary of the liquidation of the Będziny ghetto

The 28th August 2013 marks the 70th anniversary of the liquidation of the ghetto in Będziny. The ceremony will be highlighted by placing thirty thousand stones in honour of thirty thousand Będziny Jews who perished in the Holocaust.


The ceremonies will commence at Bohaterów Getta square in Będzin at 5 pm. After a short talk about the history of the liquidation of the ghetto, the ceremony of placing stones at the monument and a common prayer will take place. The organisers, the Jewish Religious Community in Katowice and the Cukerman’s Gate Foundation, kindly advise bringing a small stone, a Jewish symbol of memory.
