Warsaw

In the Park of płk. Jana Szypowskiego „Leśnika” in Warsaw, numerous structures were erected in the 50’s, made entirely from Matzeva’s.

We were received openly and kindly by many representatives of the Warsaw Municipality, who were made aware of this serious issue and have been incredibly helpful in pushing forward to remove these Matzeva’s, and return them to where they belong – The Bródno Jewish Cemetery.

We were also able to make 3D documentation with the help of the Archeological Department of the University of Warsaw.
