The Nowy Dwor Project with David Wluka

After the transport of the last 4,000 Jews from the Nowy Dwor Ghetto (in Poland) in May of 1942 to Auschwitz, the Jewish cemetery in Nowy Dwor was all but destroyed.  Graves were plundered of their concrete caskets and headstones, and the earth mined as a gravel pit.  The Nowy Dwor Jewish Memorial project was established in an effort to preserve and protect the Jewish cemetery, and create a memorial to the once-thriving Jewish community of Nowy Dwor.  David Wluka of Sharon, a descendant of residents of Nowy Dwor, will share with us the story of the town and the Memorial Project.
