The Nursing School

“A nurse with the kosovar principles of a nun,” this is how Alina Margolis remembers Luba Blum-Bielicka (1905-1973), headteacher of the Nursing School at Mariańska Street 1. In the sixth part of the series ‘Remnants of the Warsaw Ghetto’ Hanna Dzielińska (Hanka Warszawianka), journalist and tourist guide tells both about the history of this institution and the life of its leader, marred by the stigma of World War II.

‘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.
