'Greetings from Jerusalem Avenue'

Welcome to the Atlas Obscura Community discussion of ‘Greetings from Jerusalem Avenue’ in Warsaw, Poland. Ask questions or share travel tips, experiences, pictures, or general comments with the community. For the story behind this place, check out the Atlas Obscura entry:

“ Warsaw used to have a thriving Jewish community, but prejudice and discrimination caused the city’s Jewish population to dwindle.”

That’s a pretty galling way to gloss over the murder of hundreds of thousands of Warsaw’s Jews by the Nazis.

Hi there, thanks so much for pointing out that the language in that place entry missed the mark. We’re revising it now—the last thing we meant to imply was that the Holocaust could be described merely as “prejudice and discrimination.” We’re taking another look at it now, and thanks again for taking the time to flag this for us.

Thank you for your response and for addressing this.
