The former Umschlagplatz. A construction project under way on the site of the railway siding from which the Germans sent some 300,000 Warsaw Jews to the gas chambers of Treblinka and Majdanek (1942–1943). In the clearance between the unplastered buildings, Stawki Street and, running off it, today’s Zamenhofa Street. On the left, the Inflancka housing estate (originally meant to be called Sun Gates). On the horizon on the right, the blue high-rise where the Great Synagogue at Tłomackie Street used to stand. On the left, the green Intraco skyscraper at Stawki Street and the dark-grey high-rise, roughly where the former Muranowski Square used to be.
