On 11 October, a contract was signed for the construction of the Warsaw Ghetto Museum.
JDP lawyers represented the Museum at the tender stage (regarding the selection of the designer and the general contractor). Thanks to their long-term support, the works have finally commenced.
From the historical perspective, the construction of the Warsaw Ghetto Museum is particularly important. It is intended to remind people of the tragic extermination of Jews in ghettos, not only in Warsaw but also throughout Poland.
“Being part of such a unique project is prestigious for us for historical and other reasons. We consider it a great distinction for our law firm. This investment is one of the most anticipated projects on the map of Warsaw due to its interesting design, combining modern and historic styles”, says Wojciech Merkwa, Partner and Head of Public Procurement Team at the JDP law firm.
The Warsaw Ghetto Museum is planned to be built on the premises of the former Children’s Hospital founded by the Bersohn and Bauman couple at Sienna 60/Śliska 51 Streets in Warsaw. The total usable area of the museum is approximately 11,500 m2. The museum complex will include, among others: Education Centre, located in the historic building of the former Ophthalmology Pavilion, auditorium for 150 spectators, warehouses with collections and many temporary exhibitions.
