The cultural society of Borussia was founded in 1990. The association is dedicated to communicating the history and culture of the diverse landscapes of former East Prussia and works together with civic initiatives in Poland, Germany, Lithuania, Russia, the Ukraine and Belarus. The “house of cleansing” (Bet Tahara) at the Jewish cemetery is being restored and will host a cultural centre. This structure was the first project by the world-famous architect Erich Mendelsohn, who was born in Allenstein in 1887.
