Poles and Israelis building bridges

Polish Radio reports on a new program…

Poland plans to set up a new department, which will deal with developing Polish-Isreali yourth exchange programmes. In the past students from Israel have been visiting Poland during the March of the Living, an event which involves a 2.5 km march from the former Nazi death camp Auschwitz in southern Poland to the Birkenau camp nearby. During and after the commemorations Israeli teens are kept busy mingling with their Polish counterparts. Now Poland would like to broaden this longstanding relationship.

It shows how far we have come.  In 1992, when I published an article stating that there needed to be coordinated programs for Polish and Jewish youth, the Jewish establishment [NYC Board of Jewish Education] questioned my loyalty.
