Polish MEP Beata Kempa and the Institute Deputy Head Mateusz Szpytma Ph.D., opened the "Death for Humanity: The Ulma Family" exhibit in the Winston Churchill canal area, premises of the European Parliament in Strasbourg. The panels have already been displayed in several locations of the world.
"During World War II, the German occupant called what was good evil, and what was evil, good. Assistance to fellow man was punished, and for an act of humanity towards persecuted Jews, the Ulma family paid with their lives. Around 1,000 other Poles died for the same reason, but others managed to save tens of thousands of Jews," said Deputy President Szpytma.
For the Ulma family background, we recommend the first ten minutes of a documentary in which Deputy President Szpytma tells the Ulma story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDFll-MRVzQ
Before the Ulma family beatification last September, we launched a website comprising a wealth of data and multimedia, as well as exhibits and publications on these WW2 heroes murdered by the Germans for rescuing Jews: https://rodzinaulmow.ipn.gov.pl/ule/.
