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.
The full-scale replica of the wooden synagogue of Połaniec one of the hundreds of East European wooden synagogues destroyed during WW2, will be formally opened — it has been installed at Poland’s largest open-air ethnographic museum, or skansen, the Folk Architecture Museum in Sanok, in the far southeast corner of Poland.
The two-day opening event includes the inauguration on-site on October 7, plus an excursion to the masonry synagogue and historic Jewish cemetery in nearby Lesko.
The day-long conference takes place October 8, at another location in Sanok, the Jan Grodek State Vocational Academy — ul. Mickiewicza 21.
