Cleveland Park (Washington) > Garden of the Righteous at Adas Israel

Dear Polish Global Village Readers:

Annual Holocaust Remembrance Day - Commemoration of One who Saved Jewish Lives During the Holocaust.

On Sunday, April 27, 2014, commencing at 10:00 a.m., Adas Israel Congregation in Washington D.C., at its annual Garden of Remembrance event, will honor Mrs. Alicja Szczepaniak Schnepf and Natalia Szczepaniak, the mother of Poland's Ambassador to the USA, Ambassador Ryszard Schnepf, for their acts of extreme bravery in helping to shelter and save the lives of Jews in Warsaw during the Holocaust.

At the time, Mrs. Schnepf, who will be honored in person, was a resident of Warsaw and, along with her younger sister and mother, took in several Jewish families in their one-bedroom apartment while risking their own lives. Frequently, Mrs. Schnepf had to distract the German authorities or cover up for noises or other signs of the many people living in their apartment. The memorial and museum of Yad Vashem in Jerusalem honored Mrs. Schnepf as Righteous Among the Nations on November 13, 1991. She is scheduled to attend the Adas Israel ceremony.

Those of you who attended last year's ceremony in honor of the late Mrs. Irena Sendler, also of Warsaw, will recall how moving the ceremony was.

Adas Israel invites all in the Polish American community to join with it in celebrating a true Polish hero, so please mark your calendars for Sunday April 27.

Adas Israel is located in Cleveland Park, DC. The address is
