“In a modern district, it is difficult today to look for the industrial climate of former breweries or brickworks. However, there are lasting reminders of the history of this place and its inhabitants”, says Hanna Dzielińska (Hanka Warszawianka), journalist and tourist guide. The thirteenth episode of ‘Remnants of the Warsaw Ghetto’ describes the fate of Waliców Street and its surroundings, which was associated with prominent Jewish representatives of the literary life of pre-war Warsaw, including Icchok Lejb Perec, Władysław Szlengel, Bernard Singer and Menachem Kipnis.
‘Remnants of the Warsaw Ghetto’ is a film series of 16 short guided tours presenting the history of places and people associated with them. The following places will be presented: Umschlagplatz; Anielewicz Mound; Szmul Zygielbojm Monument; Monument of the Ghetto Heroes; Grzybowski Square; Mariańska Street and the Nursing School; Nożyk Synagogue; Great Synagogue at Tłomackie Street; Nalewki Street; Femina Cinema Theater; Courts at Leszno Street; Chłodna Street; Waliców Street; The Jewish Cemetery at Okopowa Street, and the Bersohn and Bauman Hospital – the place where the permanent exhibition of the Warsaw Ghetto Museum will be created.
The series presentation accompanies the commemoration of 80th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto borders closing, organized by the Warsaw Ghetto Museum in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage and TSKŻ – the Social and Cultural Society of Jews in Poland. The main events took place on November 16, 2020.
