More than 1,000 fragments of Jewish headstones that the Communist authorities removed in the 1960s from the Jewish cemetery on Zagorska Street and used to build a railway station platform will be exhibited to the public.

Excavations have been going on for six months to recover them, and they will eventually used to create a memorial.

At 5 pm, at the Muzeum Cafe Jerozolima, there will be a presentation about the history of the cemetery.

On four Thursdays in September, there will be a volunteer clean-up action at the Jewish cemetery in Katowice, Poland, organised by Slawek Pastuszka of the Chevra Kadisha, and the Foundation for Cultural Heritage.

The organizers will try to provide the participants with as many tools as possible for work, but ask volunteers to bring at least cloth gloves and basic tools, preferably a rake.
