SPIWAK (ŚP)EWAK), Warsaw, Poland #poland

Yale Reisner


Dear JewishGenners:


An article in the October 11, 2002, Gazeta Stołeczna supplement to the Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza announced that a derelict building in the Nowa Praga neighborhood of Warsaw is soon going to be restored to its original splendor based on pre-war photos that documented the building’s appearance.


The building in question – ul. Środkowa 16 – was originally built in about 1870 for Aron SPIWAK (ŚPIEWAK).  At the time, Praga on the Vistula River’s right bank was a separate city from Warsaw which lies on the left bank.  In 1891, Praga was absorbed into the Warsaw municipality.


I offer this information on the off-chance that someone has an interest in Aron SPIWAK.


Best wishes,


Yale J. Reisner
