    This mezuzah is part of a series from Mi Polin titled "Mezuzah from this house." Before World War II, Poland had 3.5 million Jewish inhabitants as well a few million mezuzot. Almost all of the Jews and their mezuzot perished during the war, with only traces and empty holes remaining today in the place of mezuzahs. "Mezuzah from this house" is a bronze cast of what is left behind and commemorates the Jewish lives of pre-war Poland. Each mezuzah has an engraved letter Shin and the address where the trace was found on the side. After sitting untouched for many years, these mezuzot can now fulfill their holy function again.
     
    The original pre-war mezuzah with a parchment inside was found in the building of the Wrocław Jewish Community on the doorpost of the kosher food magazine. This mezuzah is one of the few known pre-war mezuzot in Poland, which still contains a scroll and remains consistently since affixing more than 80 years ago. Made in Poland.
