Foundation For Saving Karol Scheibler's Chapel
Remembering the past is one of the determinants of
the culture of every society. Remembering includes taking care of
the buildings that are witnesses to history. This awareness gave
rise to the initiative to establish the Foundation.. One of the
first initiatives of Founding Committee of Foundation that was executed
together with The Society of Watching the Monuments in £ód¼ in October
2002 was reconstruction of a primary polish sentence on the facade
of the chapel:
Pamiêci Karola Scheibler
(In memory of Karol Scheibler)
At present, also with the help of mentioned Society, there is restoration
of cast-iron entrance doors in process.
In the near future the preparing of restoration program and estimation
of its costs is planned. It will make possible affords to achieve
proper funds from different sources which we then hope to find.
We would appreciate any help in this point.
Our desire is to turn this chapel during nearest years into main
tourist attraction of £ód¼, to allow it draw the attention of tourists
from the whole world. Inside we would like to prepare an exposition
showing the evolution of industrial £ód¼ and family Scheibler's
contribution to it.
Saving the Scheibler's chapel should be our common matter. We
should do as much as we can that this great monument of architecture
got restored and regained the lost beauty.
