Conservation activity

In about forty years of activity, committee has done over 1300 conservation and restoration works. However, there is still several hundred monuments waiting to be renovated, and after several dozen years, some of those will need another conservation. Their scope depends on the amount of funds intended for this goal. All of the conservation works are made by qualified conservators from the Academy of Arts and from the art department at Mikołaj Kopernik University in Toruń. Many of them are working in Powązki for over 30 years. From 1999 till 2012, the committee had done conservation works on 267 objects. Those were small gravestones, which costs less than 10 000 zł, as well as the big chapels and gravestones which cost several dozen thousands, and in some circumstances they cost more than 100 000 zł. In 2001, conservation works of Emilia and Jan Bloch chapel (kw. 181) ended. It was the most expensive conservation ever took place, it cost 299 400 zł. In years from 1999 to 2008, committee done restoration works on green space in 45 plots in the oldest part of cemetery. It was possible only because of the support of the Voivodship Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management. Cost of the works was 317 000 zł.
