The Jewish Religious Community in Warsaw announced the completion of work to commemorate the Jews who died or were murdered in the streets of the Warsaw Ghetto and were buried in one of the largest mass graves in Europe – at the Jewish Cemetery on Okopowa Street in Warsaw.
From the time of the establishment of the Warsaw Ghetto until July 1942, about 92,000 people died or were murdered there. Many of them were buried in an unnamed grave at the Jewish Cemetery on Okopowa Street in Warsaw – one of the largest mass graves in Europe. Since last week, a memorial there commemorates the thousands of the Warsaw Ghetto victims.
All works were financed with funds from the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage under the program “War Graves and Cemeteries in the Country” and the Jewish Community in Warsaw.
