New Old Town

Produced by
Roman Mars

When a town is leveled the way Warsaw, Poland, was during World War II, the question of how to rebuild involves many choices. In this episode of 99% Invisible, Roman Mars and Amy Drozdowska look at the details of how old Warsaw was re-created. Years later, it turns out that the rebuilding was not really a restoration but rather a re-imagining.
