The Koscian Memorial for Pseudo-Euthanasia
Last Update 28 March 2005
In spring 2005 a memorial should have been installed at the site of the mental home in Koscian, near
(Poland). Responsable for this important project is
the Social Committee for building a Monument for Victims of the Nazi Pseudo-Euthanasia in Poland
The monument consists of three granite pillars (3.5 m high). They shall symbolize the three nationalities
of the pseudo-euthanasia victims (Jews, Germans and Poles). The chosen granite is called "KURU GREY",
a very famous granite type. The stones are donated by
KAPEEN KIVIPOJAT COMPANY, Finland
Between the granite pillars three granite plaques will be installed, with inscriptions in Polish, German and Hebrew.
The inscriptions will be sculpted as soon as the Polish embassies of Germany and Israel agree.
This new monument is designed by Magdalena Grys (student of the Academy of Fine Arts in
), supported by Academy Prof. Janusz Stankowski.
Please send your comment or kind support to the coordinators of this project
A. Hojan and J. Szygula, via the ARCFI secretary.
The erection of the memorial is delayed because of lack of financial support!
