A tour of the area of Janowska (the slave labour camp) was also part of the program.
A memorial ceremony in Valley of Death “The Hour of Memory” was held, followed by a session of reflections on quotations from reminiscences of the pre-war life in Lwow, the Holocaust, and the life after it – The voices of Space of Synagogues. The day included a performance of the “Strudel” band and then ended beautifully, with a tour of the city’s Jewish quarters.
