Our day will commence at the Majdanek concentration and death camp, frighteningly, adjacent to the city of Lublin. From there we will travel to a small village name Markova, where we will learn the story of Joseph and Victoria Ulma and their six children, former inhabitants of the village, who in 1944 were murdered by the Nazis as punishment for sheltering Jews in their home - who of course, were murdered as well. The couple was bestowed the honor of Righteous Among the Nations by Yad VaShem in Jerusalem, and recently a small museum telling their story had been erected in their town. Visiting the museum will help us address the very complex and delicate issue that taunts Poland to this very day - and that is their attitudes and actions towards their Jewish neighbors during the Holocaust. We will then proceed to the town of Lancut where we will visit the Castle of the renown Polish Nobleman, often referred to as “the uncle of the Jews,” the Graf Potocky. We will gain an understanding of the very unique relationship that existed for centuries between the Jews and the Polish nobility. We will continue next door to the former synagogue of the town of Lancut, breathtaking in its beauty and galore. We will take a peek into the study once inhabited by the Seer of Lublin and we will meet a unique Hebrew speaking Polish Catholic gentleman, Mirik, the synagogues keeper, who has dedicated his entire being to maintaining and preserving the synagogue and its legacy. We will end our day at the gravesite of the great Rabbi Elimelech of Lizansk, one of the fathers of the Hassidic Movement.
