The Muranow neighborhood in Warsaw was once a flourishing epicentre of Jewish life and culture. During World War II the neighborhood was turned into the “Warsaw Ghetto”. After the vast majority of its residents were deported to the Treblinka death camp and many thousands more perished in the ghetto itself, it was razed to the ground by the Nazis. When the war ended the neighborhood was rebuilt with the rubble of its own destruction. Today thousands of Polish people live in the green and spacious Muranow neighborhood, yet its dark past keeps haunting it. Some of Muranow’s present-day Polish residents claim that Jewish ghosts live in the neighborhood. They say that at night the ghosts shake off the dust and ashes that cover them, and wander the streets they once lived in. Other residents think the “ghosts” are a metaphor for the once-thriving life, culture and memories of the Jewish people buried beneath the ground.
