The design for the official monument commemorating Poles who helped save Jews during the Second World War was announced this week.

The winning monument (designed by Piotr Musialowski and Paulina Pankiewicz with additional help from Michal Adamczyk) will be built on Warsaw’s Plac Grzybowski and, according to TVN24, will be a large curling ribbon-like construction featuring the names of people and organisations which helped to play their role against the Nazis in some way.

“The judges, after a difficult debate, decided that the first prize would be awarded to this design. Our attention was drawn to the ideas and the impact it would have on Plac Grzybowski,” said an official spokesperson.

“The design is a large gesture which pays homage to the heroism of the individuals connected to both violence and death. It is hoped it will help symbolise two tough worlds - one which will help commemorate the feelings of the Poles who helped do their bit to rescue Jews during German occupation,” reads an official description of the project.
