The National Day of Remembrance for Poles who rescued Jews during the German occupation is a poignant reminder of the atrocities committed during World War II. The Ulma family and the Jews who were hiding in their house paid a heavy price for their bravery, and it is important to remember their sacrifice. The event of remembrance was supported by the Polish embassy in Berlin and was help on March 23, 2023.

The celebratory concert organized on March 23, 2023, in Berlin, aimed to highlight a forgotten chapter of German-Polish history. It provided an opportunity to pay tribute to those who gave Jews shelter during the Second World War, as well as those who saved them from certain death in other ways.

One such example is the remarkable work of the "Ładoś Group," who risked their lives to help threatened Jews in Bern. Through forging Latin American IDs and raising ransoms, they were able to save many lives during one of the darkest periods in human history.

The event in Berlin was attended by a diverse group of people, including representatives from government, business, diplomacy, and the military, as well as Poles living in Berlin. This shows that the message of remembrance and gratitude resonates with people from all walks of life.

It is essential to continue to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and honor the bravery of those who risked their lives to help others. By doing so, we can ensure that the lessons of the past are not forgotten and that we work towards building a better future for all.
