Here Muranow

Article publié le 29 September 2020

The temporary exhibition Tu Muranów shows a cross section through the hidden layers of the history of the Warsaw housing estate, telling about selected places, their inhabitants and visitors.

Let’s explore the city together – discover the extraordinary multi-level history of Warsaw. Under the seemingly familiar layer, we will discover new dimensions of the past, present and future destiny of the city and its inhabitants.

At the very beginning, we will move into the 18th century to meet a Venetian who misses his native island of Murano. We will also take a walk through the old Northern District, which was the center of Jewish life before the war – at a time when Warsaw was home to the largest diaspora in Europe. We will walk down the pre-war Nalewki Street – a representative shopping street bustling with life, not inferior to the size and variety of shops, workshops and goods of present-day Marszałkowska Street in Warsaw, or the street Piotrkowska in Łódź. We will learn about the tragic fate of the Jews imprisoned in the Warsaw ghetto created here.
