Marchers to commemorate Jews deported from Warsaw ghetto

On July 22, 1942, the Germans began deporting Jews from the ghetto to the Treblinka death camp. For more than two months, from 5,000 to 7,000 Jews were transported every day by train from Warsaw’s Umschlagplatz to Treblinka, where they were exterminated.

Almost 300,000 Jews perished at the time.

This year’s March of Remembrance, the 10th event of its kind, is dedicated to teachers who accompanied their pupils until the last moments before the deportations.

Marchers are expected to walk along a symbolic "from death to life" route starting at the Umschlagplatz Memorial and ending on Warsaw's Stare Nalewki Street.

The nearby Krasiński Garden will be the venue of an art installation called The Benches and a concert featuring an electro-acoustic piece entitled "Nothing New Has Happened To Us," based on A Cup of Tears: A Diary of the Warsaw Ghetto by Abraham Lewin, a teacher of Hebrew and Jewish history in a Warsaw girls’ school.
