The story hidden behind
The tenement also known as the “Rabbi’s House” also housed a cheder. A spacious apartment on the second floor was occupied by Rabbi Zalman Borensztajn before the outbreak of war.
On May 10, 1990, a commemorative plaque, designed by Jerzy Kolodziej, was placed on the facade of the tenement. With inscriptions in Polish, Hebrew and English reading “In memory of the martyrdom and extermination of 6,000 Brzezinski Jews by the German occupier in 1939-1945”.
