Grzybowski Square

“Grzybowski Square lay on the border of two worlds: Jewish and Christian” – says Hanna Dzielińska (Hanka Warszawianka), journalist and tourist guide in the fifth part of ‘Remnants of the Warsaw Ghetto’. The episode devoted to Grzybowski Square raises the issues of Catholic Jews attending the so-called small ghetto church of All Saints and brings two prominent figures associated with him– Dr. Ludwik Hirszfeld and priest Marcel Godlewski.

Today there is an open-air exhibition of WGM “Every third of us”, using unique photographs of the Warsaw Ghetto from archives from all over the world, which can be viewed until the end of 2021 –
