Jewish Life, Warsaw: 15 reviews and 31 photos

  Fallen Beauty

This used to be a part of the Warsaw Jewish Ghetto. After the Ghetto uprising (during World War II) most of Ghetto buildings were totally destroyed and only a few of them were left.

Ulica Prozna consists of 19th century Jewish buildings, now in a very bad condition. They were never restored after World War II and now they are falling apart. Some of them are inhabited, some are not. As far as I know, an Israeli investor decided to restore those buildings but somehow he didn't.

In this picture you can see windows of abandoned flats. As you see, the house used to be a pearl of downtown architecture...

You'll find more pictures of Prozna in my travelogue.
