I am a Pole, I live in Warsaw, at the moment I am sitting in the office which is just a block away from where the ghetto wall stood during the war. The sirens in the center on Warsaw have just rang out. It is hard not tio think about it, not necessarily only today. I guess there are more people like me and the proximity to the Jewish ghetto doesn't have much to do with it. The PR excercise will surely help remember ones that don't know much about the history. The residents at 7 Zielna may or may not be among them- it's probably best to ask what they know and tell them in case they don't. Well, it's good that we get at least one good word, even we stumble ocassionally, though you text suggests we stumble all the time. The yellow flower, the 'logo' is a daffodile - the flowers Marek Edelmann used to lay at the Ghetto Uprising monument in Warsaw every year. He survived the uprising, he was Jewish and Polish at the same time, just like Julian Tuwim, just like Zamenhoff and many others.I don't think there is a contradiction in this. The museum will be great - I am pretty sure of that. So far there is not only a budilding (a really beatutiful one), but they started to organise various activities and the exhibition is due to open in January - they jus need more time to make it right. I am really looking forward to visiting. I hope you do too. And yes, Poland is not just the Holocaust. Just as Israel is more than people in Poland and other countries usually think. I have been there and I liked it. Greetings from Warsaw.
