Polish fund to restore Europe's largest Jewish cemetery

Polish fund to restore Europe's largest Jewish cemeteryPoland on Friday launched a multi-million euro investment fund to pay for the restoration of Europe’s largest Jewish cemetery located in Warsaw and largely neglected since the Holocaust. Culture Minister Piotr Glinski said that profits generated from the fund valued at 24 million euros ($ 28 million) would ensure maintenance of the site that bears witness to Warsaw’s lost Jewish community. It is is the final resting place for about 250,000 people, mostly Warsaw elites, according to its director Przemyslaw Szpilman.
