Abstract

This paper examines how the contemporary community of Mszana Dolna, a town in southern Poland, deals with the memory of the Holocaust and the local Jewish community. The town, a place of a massacre of almost 1000 Jews in August 1942, rediscovered its Jewish heritage at the beginning of the 2000s through two main activities. One is the local commemoration of the shooting of Jews of Mszana. The other is the local schools’ involvement in the educational programs on the history and culture of Polish Jews. The article explores how the memory of Jews in Mszana evolved through the last two decades and the impact it had on the community of the town.
