The idea for commemorating the Jewish history of the town came from the local high school and its teachers. In 2003, the school, and the Centre for Citizenship Education, a non-governmental organization, launched an education program called ‘Traces of the Past' to examine the multi-cultural history of Kamień Krajeński that ended with the Nazis. Two teachers of the school discovered the tragic history of the Jewish cemetery. The Jewish cemetery iwas established in 19th century near the road to Chojnice. After WWII, the area was built over. Now, an agricultural cooperative society occupies the site closed in the 1970s. The remains of the Jews reburied in the Catholic cemetery. In June 2008, a ceremony organized by the two teachers took place dAmong the guests were the representatives of local authorities, Catholic and Protestant clergy, and members of the Jewish community..
