Dedication monument made of rescued matzevot @ Jewish cemetery, Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki, Poland
Jun 6 @ 12:00 – 13:00

A second memorial wall made of rescued matzevot has been constructed next to the 2011 original memorial wall and will be inaugurated. These are matzevot that were buried under local streets and have been recovered in recent months, thanks to the the initiative and efforts of Grzegorz Grzybowski and with the support of Mayor Kowalski and local military authorities.  

Gregorz Grzybowski is the contractor who designed and built the wall and plaza at the cemetery that was dedicated in 2011. 

It is known that there are still partial and full headstones scattered around the city that had been used for walls, walkways, etc. The Mayor’s office has undertaken a program to encourage people who have these to turn them in to the city and receive replacement blocks or decorative pavers in return.

The dedication of the new monument takes place withing an annual reunion of descendants from Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki, taking place June 4-6.
