Restoration Work at Warsaw’s Okopowa Street Jewish Cemetery

Ongoing restoration work at Warsaw’s vast Okopowa street Jewish cemetery saw the repair and renovation of dozens of headstones and monuments last year. On its website devoted to the cemetery’s restoration, Poland’s Cultural Heritage Foundation listed a total of 51 tombs that had been restored in 2019.

Restoration work in the cemetery is being carried out by the Foundation,  financed by Warsaw’s Department of Heritage Protection, the Jewish Community in Warsaw (the cemetery’s owner),  the Mazovia Region, and the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage — specifically from the profits of investments of the approx. €24 million granted by the Polish government in 2017 to an endowment fund for the cemetery.
