An open-air Jewish museum marking places of Jewish history in Radomsko, Poland opened on June 2 with a ceremony attended by the ambassadors of Israel and Germany and other VIPs.
The museum, a sort of walking trail, consists of some 50 plaques embedded into the sidewalks around the town, south of Warsaw, that provide information about the Jewish history of Radomsko and the sites being marked — including former synagogues, schools and houses where Jewish families lived.
The museum is a project of the Yiddele Memory association, founded by Rachel Lili Kesselman, which worked closely with city officials, including Mayor Anna Milczanowska.
(Unfortunately, some 15 of the plaques were vandalized in the days before the opening, but they were repaired by the opening ceremony.)
Radomsko also has an extensive Jewish cemetery, dating from 1816.
