Merciful Samaritans from Markowa the Ulma family

On March 24, 1944, Józef and Wiktoria Ulma, together with their seven children, were murdered by the German gendarmerie for hiding eight Jews. The Goldman, Didner and Grünfeld families, hidden by the Ulma family, also died. The Ulma family will be beatified on September 10,, 2023 in Markowa.

Józef Ulma was born in 1900, in Markowa. He completed four grades of elementary school, but later he continued his education at various courses in the field of agriculture and fruit-growing. He was passionate about photography, bookbinding, horticulture and beekeeping. A special place in his home library was occupied by the Bible, which he often read and marked the passages. After his murder, in his Holy Bible, a marked passage of the parable of the Good Samaritan was found with the note: “Yes.”
