On All Saints' Day on November 1 and All Souls' Day on November 2, Poles traditionally flock to family graves to lay wreaths and light candles.

Celebrities will be raising money at Powązki, the oldest cemetery in Warsaw, for the renovation of historic tombstones and chapels on November 1, 2 and 3, public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported.

Among the famous faces will be actors Maja Komorowska, Olgierd Łukaszewicz and Jan Englert, the agency added.

Fundraising drives have been held at the cemetery since 1974. Thanks to the money collected, a total of 1,460 tombstones and chapels have been renovated so far, according to IAR.

"We have to remember our history. When people’s memory fades, the stones still speak out,” said Marcin Święcicki, the chairman of the Social Committee for the Protection of the Old Powązki Cemetery.

“This is our common heritage, which we must care for and preserve for future generations," he added.
