Hollywood producer Charles B. Wessler has issued an appeal for people to donate artefacts to the Warsaw Ghetto Museum, which is being built in the Polish capital.

In a video message, he says: “If anyone has stories or artefacts such as letters, documents, photographs, or objects from pre-World War II and wartime Poland, please contact us.”

Wessler’s appeal comes after a private visit to Warsaw in June, during which he met the museum’s director, Albert Stankowski.

Wessler offered to assist the museum in collecting artefacts relating to the history of Jews in pre-war Poland and their plight during World War II.

Wessler’s credits as producer include Green Book, Dumb and Dumber and There’s Something about Mary.

The Warsaw Ghetto Museum will be housed in a former children’s hospital, which is one of the very few buildings in what was the Jewish Ghetto to survive the war.

It is to open in 2023, on the 80th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.
