On 18 April 2013, on the initiative of Klamra Foundation (Polish: Fundacja Klamra), a mural with the image of Marek Edelman was unveiled on the façade at 9b Nowolipki Street. It honours Edelman for his commitment to human rights and the Tibet's cause. The mural features a young Marek Edeleman with a daffodil in his hand raised high. Below are his words about freedom: "Basically, the most important thing is life. And when there is life, freedom is the most important thing. And then one sacrifices life for freedom". Daffodils – flowers which Edelman would lay every year at the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes (Polish: pomnik Bohaterów Getta). The mural was created by Dariusz Paczkowski, an activist, a street-artist, a co-president of Klamra Foundation.
