Redaktor: Ewa Bukaa, Cezary Surmaski   
          On 18 May the pupils of MOS, assisted by Ewa Buakaa and Cezary Sumaski, took part in a trip to the Museum of History and Archeology in Czstocice. On the arrival, we were welcomed by Waldemar Brociek, the curator, who outlined the plan of the tour for us. He showed us around the park, told about the history of the place and archeological digs around the museum where remains of a Roman settlement were once found. 
Next, we started the tour around the museum. At the beginning the guide told us about the origins of the town, its founders, and history. We saw the family memorabilia of the original owners of Ostrowiec, numerous photos showing how the town and lives of its inhabitants looked many years ago. We also got familiar with old town plans and former names of the streets.

Jewish cemetery in Ostrowiec witokrzyski PDF Drukuj Email
Redaktor: Administrator   
Jewish cemetery in Ostrowiec witokrzyski – established in 1657. Located on a small hill and surrounded by trees. Like most Jewish cemeteries in Poland, during World War II, it was profaned and devastated by the Nazis. The tombstones were used to pave the streets and sidewalks in the town. The cemetery was located within the ghetto which was the scene of numerous executions of Jews. In 1957 the contemporary town authorities claimed part of the cemetery’s area to adapt it for the city park. Two hundred tombstones were preserved on the area of one hectare. Some of the saved matzevots were placed in one spot to create a miniature relic of a kirkut. Many matzevots still have the original traditional ornaments and inscriptions in Hebrew, Yiddish and Polish. The last record of a burial ceremony there dates from 1943.  
 
Important places in witokrzyski Region. Sanctuary of the Holy Cross PDF Drukuj Email

The legend has it that Benedictian abbey was founded by Bolesaw Chrobry in 1006 A.D. In the 14th century it assumed the name Holy Cross. The sanctuary boasts to host the relic of the Holy Cross on which Jesus Christ died. This fact was a reason for countless pilgrimages which made the sanctuary one of the most important ones in Poland. During its long history, the abbey has been damaged and plundered several times. It was only thanks to generous founders and sponsors that it managed to be restored. In 1819 the buildings of the abbey were taken over by the State Treasury of the Polish Crown. Currently, part of the building hosts the novitiate of the Missionary Oblates. The post-benedictian abbey includes a square-shaped complex of monastery buildings from the 14th and 15th century together with a garth, gallery, early Baroque chapel of the Oleniccy and late-Baroque-classical church. The west, early-Baroque wing hosts now the Museum of Nature and Forest, and the eastern part of the complex consists of a Baroque belfry and the 17th century gate.
