March 24 marks a special memorial day in the country dedicated to Poles who risked their lives to save their Jewish neighbours from the Holocaust.

This year events are predominantly being held online due to the coronavirus pandemic, public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported.

On March 24, 1944, German military police shot members of the Polish family of Józef and Wiktoria Ulma, who were sheltering Jews in the village of Markowa in the southeast of the country.

Mateusz Szpytma, deputy head of Poland's Institute of National Remembrance (IPN), has said that "Poles who saved Jews were, are and should serve as a role model and an inspiration."

Polish President Andrzej Duda told world leaders in January that “the truth about the Holocaust must not die.”
