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.

Co-operation with schools

As part of the project an educational programme was designed for students attending schools situated in the vicinity of the sites included on the route of the Memory Trail.

The programme included workshops on the history of the commemorated sites and events whose significance in the Operation Reinhard action carried out in Lublin and in the whole of the General Government territory was particularly emphasised.

Walks along the Memory Trail commemorating the Holocaust of the Lublin Jews were also organised.
