"The teachers sacrificed along with the children." The 22nd of July March of Remembrance
‘This year’s March of Remembrance is dedicated to the teachers. In the ghetto’s extreme conditions, they still believed in the importance of education and moral standards they were teaching. Until the very last moments before deportations they accompanied their students in reading and writing lessons or preparations to their graduations exams. Many of them joined the pupils in their last journey to the Umschlagplatz,’ says Monika Krawczyk, Director of the Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute, about the heroes of our annual 22nd of July March of Remembrance. The event will start at 6 pm CET at Umschlagplatz Memorial, 10 Stawki Street, Warsaw.
