The Memory Trail commemorating the Jewish inhabitants of Lublin who perished in the Holocaust was created on the initiative of the “Grodzka Gate – NN Theatre” Centre and supported by the Ministry of Culture and National Hertitage.

The work undertaken in the project includes marking the boundaries of the ghetto in Podzamcze as well as the route along which the Lublin Jews were led to Umschlagplatz from which approx. 28 thousand men, women and children were taken to the death camp in Bełżec. The Memory Trail is additionally designed to mark the locations which have not been commemorated so far – among others the Jewish Quarter in Wieniawa, the ghetto in Majdan Tatarski, as well as the site where the children from the orphanage were executed together with their guardians.

The creation of the ghetto was a means to exclude the Jewish community of Lublin from the very life and history of a city it had been contributing to for hundreds of years. The stigmatization of Jews was symbolised by the yellow Star of David clearly attached to their clothing. The establishment of the ghetto was the first step on the way to the annihilation of the Jewish community. This is why marking the boundaries of the ghetto in yellow is of such great significance.
