Commemoration of March 1968

12.03.2018  16:06

In March, we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March events from 1968, which led to mass emigration of Jews from Poland.

On 11th March 2018, Ambassador Ole Egberg Mikkelsen participated in the opening of an exhibition entitled "Man Overboard. Łódź Residents 50 Years after March". The project is aiming at presenting the fate of Jews from Łódź who left Poland between 1968 and 1972. Many of them emigrated to Denmark.

The title of the project "Man Overboard" symbolizes their struggle for survival in a foreign environment "without a life jacket". The Danish Cultural Institute in Poland has assumed the honorary patronage over the project.
