The results of the competition for a conceptual design commemorating the Great Synagogue in Tłomackie.
During the main events in the memory space we will reveal the winners of the contest for a design commemorating the Great Synagogue in Tłomackie. The prizes will be given to the winners personally by Professor Paweł Śpiewak. Then, all of the assembled will have a chance to see a post-contest exhibition of the submitted works. The exposition will be presented in Błękitny Wieżowiec (Pl. Bankowy 2)
Happening — a sentimental timetravel
After the official part, we will begin a happening during which we are going to take the residents of the capital on a timetravel. It will be possible thanks to the reconstruction of the urban space presenting the Great Synagogue. The installation in the scale of 1:10 will appear next to al. Solidarności, close to Ratusz-Arsenał underground station. It will constitute a kind of idea of the pre-war square in Tłomackie. At those times, the Great Synagogue was the most characteristic part of the square. The happening will feature a choir performance of songs which once could be heard inside the Great Synagogue.
By this symbolic act the Great Synagogue in Tłomackie will revive again at least for a while!
