video

The film was made in the former concentration camp Kulmhof in Chełmno nad Nerem (Poland) on 26 October, 2014, during the warm-up before the 34th Warciański Run. The run starts in a forest where the extermination camp functioned, near the signboard reading ›Chełmno execution camp‹. The area hiding the mass graves is used as a space for warm-up before the run. The route is ten kilometers. The same distance was the last way of the victims from the train in the city of Koło to the forest in Chełmno. The run is not intended to commemorate the victims.

Dawid Marszewski (*1991) lives and works in Poznań. In 2014 he graduated from the Faculty of Painting at the University of Arts in Poznan. Scholar of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage. He lives and works in Poznan, Poland.
