The main events were held at the Jewish cemetery in Warsaw and at the site of the former Jewish ghetto, the largest one established by German Nazis on Polish soil.
Poland’s chief Rabbi, Michael Schudrich and Catholic Bishop Rafał Markowski, who is in charge of ecumenical dialogue, prayed together in Hebrew and in Polish.
The celebrations in Warsaw started on Tuesday and will last until Sunday. They will include movie screenings, concerts and discussions. (tf/vb)
