Warsaw Ghetto Museum

Sunday, October 3

Due to circumstances beyond our control, this event has been cancelled. We hope to reschedule it for a future date.

Rabbi David Berman will be talking about the museum which is being developed in the city and is due to open in 2023.

The Warsaw Ghetto Museum is being built in the old Children’s Hospital (pictured here), one of the few buildings surviving from the Warsaw Ghetto. More than 400,000 Jews were crammed into the Ghetto, the vast majority of whom were either murdered in camps like Treblinka or who died of disease or starvation or were killed during the 1943 Uprising. The aim of the Ghetto museum is ‘To disseminate knowledge about the life, struggle and extermination of the Polish Jews in the Warsaw ghetto and other ghettos of the German-occupied Poland.’

David Berman is an orthodox rabbi based in Warsaw and is currently working as a research expert at the museum development.  David was born in Sydney and studied at the Gateshead Yeshiva in England. He worked in Israel where he lectured and became a Talmudic scholar.

David will be talking about the work of the museum and is especially interested in hearing from anyone with a connection to Warsaw as they’re currently in the process of gathering material.
