planting the Krynker small forest at the Martyrs' Forest
Trees - Candles for the departed
The shocking Second World War came to an end. Individual Krynker survivors arrived in Israel and brought news of our hometown terrible. Everyone was murdered, exterminated by the Nazi animals and their helpers among the Polish population. We were shaken even though we already knew about the situation of our brothers and sisters.
The Jewish settlement in Israel decided to propose a forest of six million trees in memory of our devoured brothers in Europe. We, Krynkers in Israel, as well as throughout the world, planted in Yaar HaKdoshim [Martyrs' Forest] up to two thousand trees in the Krynker small forest in memory and in the names of our annihilated townspeople.
