Jews as relics

The week's news at a glance.

Warsaw

Polish authorities broke ground this week for a “Museum of the History of Polish Jews.” The site, in the former Warsaw Ghetto, is next to a monument to the 1943 Ghetto Uprising and near the railroad station from which hundreds of thousands of Jews were sent to death camps. Until World War II, Poland was home to 3.3 million Jews, Europe’s largest Jewish community. Today, the Jewish population is less than 30,000. The $65 million multimedia museum is intended to document the 1,000-year history of Jews in Poland. “This will not be another Holocaust museum,” said Marian Turski, one of the founders. “It will be a museum of life.”
