May 17, 2012: Presentation at the Polish Embassy

The Nowy Dwor Project was presented at the Polish Embassy to the United States in Washington, DC at a special evening event. David Wluka of Boston, accompanied by Nancy & Zachary Wluka, and Ze'ev Shaked from Texas told the story of the restoration and dedication of the cemetery. Michael and Allen Wluka, their families from Boston, cousin Kenny Ames from Washington DC, and cousins Tsvika & Orna Plachinski from Israel came to DC just for the event.

Members of the DC Jewish community as well as academics working on Holocaust related programs attended and participated in a lively discussion followed by a dinner provided by the Embassy.

First Secretary Witold Dzielski coordinated and hosted the evening on behalf of the Ambassador. He commented that “This is a most important event that shows how big a difference a small group of people can make with vision and determination."
