The Daffodils social and educational campaign

POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews is organising a commemoration of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising for the fifth time. As in the previous years, several hundred volunteers will offer yellow paper daffodils – a symbol of the memory of the Uprising - to the residents of Warsaw.

Daffodils symbolize memory, respect, and hope. They are linked to the story of Marek Edelman, the last commander of the Jewish Combat Organisation, who each year on the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising was sent a bunch of yellow daffodils by an anonymous person. Each year on 19 April he himself used to lay a bouquet of yellow flowers – often daffodils - at the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes. Information on the call for volunteers >>
