Gdańsk

Cemetery of the Lost Cemeteries

  ul. 3 Maja, Gdańsk ,   No District         07 Jun 2019
Designed by Jacek Krenz and Hanna Klementowska and featuring sculptures by Zygfryd Korpalski and Witold Głuchowski, this small memorial between the Church of Corpus Christi and the Bus Station was officially opened on May 24, 2002. Dedicated to the citizens of Gdańsk who were once buried in one of the city’s 27 graveyards either destroyed during WWII or bulldozed on purpose after the end of the war, the new Cemetery of Lost Cemeteries was designed to resemble a temple. The main memorial is surrounded by broken gravestones representing all faiths, and includes a poem by the Jewish poet Masha Kaleko (1912-1975), whose poetry was burnt on the direct orders of Hitler in May 1933.
