A monument to the memory of Lublin’s martyred Jews will be erected in that city with the support of the Lublin City Council, the Union of Fighters For Freedom and Democracy and Jewish groups, it was reported in the Warsaw Jewish paper, Folkstimme.

The proposal for such a monument was put forward by the local Jewish community and was supported by Lublin Mayor Januk. The editor of the Polish daily “Standar Lulu, ” has asked that Jewish sculptors from all over the world be asked to send in projects for a fitting memorial.
