First Anniversary of the Museum, July 2015
On July 8th 2015 in Radomsko, the first Anniversary of the ‘’Kesselman Museum’’, the first Jewish Open Air Museum in Europe on a 13 kms course !
Participants were greeted at noon by a strictly kosher meal at Hotel Zameczek.
After the speeches, we went together to the Radomsko Jewish cemetery. Jews and non-Jews left their requests for blessings on small papers on the tomb of the Tzadikim.
Then, the city tour together and on our way, a huge happening organized by “Yiddele’ Memory” with the scouts of Radomsko and the Director of the school N ° 7 surprised us !
In front of about twenty buildings, as we were passing, young people turned round and showed pictures of the Jews who had a connection with the building and the institution it housed.
We almost expected to see the people appear in flesh !
The past was there before our eyes, in the hands of the youth of Radomsko.
Some quite magic moments !
