Mrs. Henrietta Nowakowski is interviewed by Alicja Karlic.
The idea to find the graves of the forgotten Michigan Hallers was born while organizing the private archives of Henrietta Nowakowska’s parents. In the reports of the Women’s Auxiliary Corps meetings No. 5, Mrs. Henrietta read about the 1929 purchase of 72 sites at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Southfield, Mi. on the graves of World War I veterans, the Haller’s veterans.
Thirty-seven graves are nameless to this day, without tombstones with names.
Employees of the Institute of National Remembrance researched the exact determination of the details of buried veterans. They took over the implementation of the project, which will soon find its finale. The nameless heroes of World War I will be given their Names and Surnames on new tombstones funded by the Institute of National Remembrance.
