This house was constructed at the turn of the 20th century. It was owned by the Wulkan, Leser, and Teichner families. The Kluger family store in the basement of the house sold live chickens, and Symcha Kluger was also a melamed (Hebrew: religious teacher).
Today, traces of the Kluger family’s history remain throughout the house. The doorframe of the house is original, and an imprint of the mezuzah is visible on its inner right side. The mezuzah is a parchment scroll inscribed with handwritten verses from Deuteronomy (6,4-9 and 11,13-21), which comprise the Jewish prayer Shema Israel (Hebrew: “Hear O Israel”). A mezuzah is traditionally hung on the doorframes of a Jewish home. In 2002, the house was donated to the Auschwitz Jewish Center by Bronia Rosenblatt nee Kluger and Moses Kluger.
