The guest of the Political Salon added that on March 14th the Gaon Museum in Vilnius will host the premiere of Ilona Lewandowska’s book “This is What Decent People Do Now. Vilnius Region Poles Rescuing Jews”. It is a book which tells in a very moving way the stories of people who were saved during the Holocaust.
Ilona Lewandowska’s book, published by the Polish Institute, has received the patronage of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews and the Jewish Institute of History.
“It shows how important this topic is and that such book was needed” said Marcin Łapczyński, director of the Polish Institute in Vilnius.
