The Daffodil Campaign, also known as the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising Campaign, is a public history project that seeks to educate the community on the history of the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto uprising. The Daffodil Campaign was initiated by the Museum of the History of Polish Jews in 2013 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. Over 500 volunteers handed out 50,000 paper daffodils pins and about 80,000 brochures with historical information. TV news presenters at every major TV channel were wearing daffodils on that day, extending the reach of the campaign to millions of viewers. The campaign is recreated yearly by handing out thousands of yellow daffodil pins on the streets of Warsaw and many other cities worldwide. This year, Birmingham, AL is participating for the 80th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.
Join us on March 23, 2023 at 6:30pm at the N.E. Miles Jewish Day School to learn about the uprising, make paper daffodils, and honor those who perished in the Warsaw Ghetto.
