The first direct measurement of the magnetization of donor bound magnetic polarons in diluted magnetic semiconductors is reported. The experiment has been performed taking advantage of photomemory effect found in n-type Cd1-xMnxTe1-ySey crystals doped with In. Good agreement between experimental results and theory of bound magnetic polarons is observed.
