Polish Cemetery Expert Jan Jagielski Awarded Irena Sendler Memorial Award by the Taube Foundation
Jan Jagielski, whose decades-long dedication to the documentation, protection and preservation of Jewish cemeteries and other sites in Poland is legendary, has been awarded the second annual Irena Sendler Memorial Award by the Taube Foundation. My sister Ruth, who introduced me to Jan in 1990 - she had already known him for years - has written about Jan and the award on her blog, where she has also posted the press release form the Taube Foundation.
