Mail from Lodz

The Memorial has recently received a package from the Muzeum Tradycji Niepodległościowych in Lodz, Poland.

In 1985 Jaskiewicz became the representative of the Polish Amicale Internationale de Neuengamme in Lodz and since then maintained contact with former prisoners all over the world. Read more
