Polish Students Honored for Exploring History of Jewish Towns

Some 1,200 Polish students and teachers took part in the concluding program of the School of Dialogue, which explores the history of Jewish towns and cities in the country.

Bogdan Borusewicz, the speaker of the Polish Senate, thanked the students for their participation in the project, which builds “tolerance and understanding of other cultures and religions.”

At a gala Friday, the most interesting projects created by the students were honored.

Forum for Dialogue is the largest and oldest Polish non-governmental organization engaging in Polish-Jewish dialogue. Its School of Dialogue project works with youth from all over Poland, helping them discover the Jewish past of their towns, as well as making them feel responsible for preserving the memory.
