The Museum of the History of Polish Jews will complete the memorial complex of which it is part. It stands on the site of the Warsaw Ghetto and Jewish neighborhood of prewar Warsaw. It faces the Monument to the Warsaw Ghetto Fighters, which honors those who died by remembering the genocide (the great deportation is shown on the “reverse” side of the monument) and the heroic uprising. The Museum honors those who died by remembering how they lived, a story of 1000 years. Yet, there are those who ask why we are building this museum in Poland and not in the United Sates or Israel.
