For the thirteenth time, the Museum of Kraków organises the celebration of Gestapo Victims Memorial Days in order to preserve the tragic history of the house at ul. Pomorska 2 in the memory of inhabitants of Kraków and the Małopolska Region.

The ceremony will be attended by veterans, representatives of state and local authorities, the guard of honour of the Polish Army, a military orchestra, Kraków schoolchildren and inhabitants of Kraków and the Małopolska Region. The program of the ceremony includes an official parade in honour of the victims of the Gestapo, the laying of flowers at the memorial plaque on the façade of the Silesian House at ul. Pomorska 2, speeches prepared by the employees of the Pomorska Street division, a meeting with witnesses to history and a city game.
This year’s celebration will be devoted to the anniversary of the outbreak of World War II and the Gestapo’s repressions against Polish soldiers of September 1939.
