Since 2015, we have been coordinating volunteering projects taking place at the cemetery. Every year in spring and summer we engage volunteers in tidying up and cleaning the oldest and most neglected parts of the cemetery. Our volunteering projects include also learning walks around and across the cemetery, familiarizing their participants with the Polish-Jewish history and culture. We’ve had more than 300 volunteers taking part in our projects so far. We also organize international volunteering initiatives. In 2017, we organized a project bringing together people from eight different European countries. Thanks to the active involvement of our volunteers, we have managed to tidy up almost 4 hectares of the cemetery to date.

about foundation

The Cultural Heritage Foundation was established in 2012 on the initiative of Michał Laszczkowski, PhD, and Paweł Wilski. Its mission is to protect and promote the national heritage of Poland as an element of European cultural heritage. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are able to restore many Polish heritage assets to their former glory and leave them in the best condition possible for the generations to come.
