The destruction of Warsaw in 1944 replaced the urban geography sedimented in history with the immemorial dimension of geology: stone, concrete, and bricks dominated the space not as witnesses to the matrix of urban experience, but as mute rubble on which prevailed the timeless dimension of minerality. Observed by the open craters in the Southern District, today’s ongoing construction activity is erasing the fragments of the XX-century city, its memorial uniqueness. In Waliców St. three symbolic architectures survive. They are a proof of material resistance and an evidence of the Ghetto’s immanence in the present. As petrified architectural scripts, they express the spatial dimension of History and the need for a project to testimony: the reinterpretation of time through the present of urban space.
