The Muranow neighborhood in Warsaw was a flourishing and important Jewish center. During World War II the neighborhood was turned into the ”Warsaw Ghetto” When the war ended the neighborhood was rebuilt with the rubble of its own destruction. Today thousands of Polish people live in the green and spacious Muranow neighborhood, yet its dark past keeps haunting it. Polish residents claim that Jewish ghosts live in the neighborhood. They say at night they shake off the dust and ashes that cover them, and wander the streets they once lived in. Other residents think the ghosts are a metaphor for the life, culture and memories of the Jewish people buried beneath the ground.
