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