One Stone – One Life

Watch this video showing the Day of Commemoration memorializing the 80th anniversary of the deportation of the Jews of Gąbin in 1942. Students from the Staczica School and visiting descendants of Jewish families placed 2100 stones on route to the deportation field. Each stone represents one life taken. You will see the mayor and other speakers in the Old Market Square, hear students singing, and see the closing ceremony at the deportation field. For returning, descendants the commemoration, though bittersweet, marked a renewal of our connection and ties to Gąbin.
