A new Jewish museum is scheduled to open this Friday in Warsaw, Poland. It will be taking place on the 70th anniversary of the ill-fated ghetto uprising where a few hundred heroic Jews took up arms against the occupying Germans. Poland was home to a thriving Jewish presence for over one thousand years.
A mezuzah made of brick taken from one of the foundations at the site will be affixed to the doorway at the dedication. Needless to say, this museum was not in the ‘Final Solution,’ and “It is a sign of the revival of the Jewish world,” says deputy director Z. Stepinski.
