[p. 342]

Krynker landslayt from America, Argentina, Israel, etc.
planting the “Krynker small forest” at the “Martyrs' Forest”


This Is How We Began

Trees - Candles for the departed

In memory of our martyrs

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.
