The event also aims to underline Poles’ and Jews’ common legacy and to voice disapproval for antisemitism.

A number of Roman Catholic organisations took part in the event’s preparations. Maria Miduch, one of the march’s organisers, said: “It’s an opportunity to manifest solidarity.”

The march is to set out from the historical Collegium Maius courtyard in Kraków Old Town, stopping at six locations that had a significant Jewish presence.

The event ends with a free concert at the Tempel Synagogue in the evening.
