2005, Ukraine

In 2005 a documentary film about Fr. Kowcz was produced by Link Art Film for The Polish TV Co. Channel 1. "Proboszcz Majdanka - Parish Priest of Majdanek" debuted in Lublin, Poland and has since been shown in other places and various film festivals.

 

Story as explained at the Los Angeles Annual Polish Film Festival: "This film portrays the unusual figure of Father Emilian Kowcz - A Greek Catholic priest, pronounced blessed by Pope John Paul II During his visit to Lviv. This priest was active in the underground during the time of occupation by two totalitarian regimes: Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany. He often found himself in the midst of quarrelling Polish, Ukrainian and Jewish neighbors. The life of Father Kowcz, his work and martyrdom provide a unique opportunity to bring together these different cultures (Ukrainian, Polish and Jewish). He died in Majdanek in 1944 - sharing the fate of many thousands put to death in the gas chambers of the camp."

2004, February 17 & 18, Lublin, Poland

"On 17 February 2004, Ukrainian, Polish and Jewish scholars participated in a conference, “Europe’s Borders,” dedicated to the commemoration of the martyred Fr. Omelian Kowcz (1884-1944), who died in Majdanek, a Nazi concentration camp in Lublin, Poland.

On 18 February 2004, the commemoration continued with the dedication of a street intersection to Fr. Kowcz, who was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2001. The ceremony then moved to Majdanek, where an ecumenical prayer service was held. The commemoration culminated in a Divine Liturgy celebrated by Cardinal Husar together with the Greek and Roman Catholic clergy in Lublin."
