The Memory Lives On… The Memory Lives On…

The last surviving section of the wall that once ringed the Jewish Ghetto is to undergo an extensive program of conservation. Though a final project has yet to be selected, the Mayor of Wola has already stated that the plans will include the addition of a ‘historical zone’, assorted clean-up work, extra information boards and easier access for the public. As things stand, those who visit must first enter through a barred gate at Złota 62 before negotiating a warren of courtyard pathways to reach the wall.

Further, the Culture Minister has declared his intention to create a Museum of the Warsaw Ghetto in collaboration with the Jewish Historical Institute. Though a timeline has yet to be specified, the location has already been selected: a former Jewish children’s hospital on ul. Śliska.
