Our annual Daffodils Campaign raises awareness of the first and largest Jewish uprising in German-occupied Europe. This campaign is inspired by Marek Edelman, a leader of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, who would anonymously receive a bouquet of yellow daffodils each year and lay them at the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes.
Each year in Poland since 2013, hundreds of volunteers have been handing out paper daffodils in memory of those who fought for dignity in the Warsaw Ghetto. During the last three years, the Daffodils Campaign has extended from the streets of Warsaw to the world. Thanks to our campaign in Brussels, members of the European Parliament wore the daffodils on April 19, 2018. In 2019 we promoted the campaign in United States, focusing on New York and New Jersey, and in 2020 on Los Angeles. In 2020, we also promoted the campaign in Israel.
The number of volunteers has grown steadily and in 2020, POLIN Museum was expecting almost 3,000 volunteers to hand out 250,000 paper daffodils. Due to the pandemic, the entire campaign moved online. The response exceeded our wildest expectations. We reached almost 41 million people. 1.5 million people added to their social media posts the campaign’s official hashtags: #RememberingTogether and #WarsawGhettoUprisingCampaign.
