On the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Rising, the Museum of the History of Polish Jews will begin its educational and cultural activity in its new seat on Anielewicza Street 6 in Warsaw. On this day, this remarkable building will open its doors to its first visitors.
The Museum presents the continuity of the one thousand-year-long history of Polish Jews – from the Middle Ages until today. It is a story about a people and civilisation which has shaped the face of Poland, Europe and the world across the ages. Starting in April, the museum will offer its visitors a wide-ranging educational and cultural programme, featuring exhibitions, debates, films, concerts, lectures, classes for adults and children, students and teachers, international youth exchanges, and walks across Jewish Warsaw. The opening of the museum’s main exhibition, prepared by an international team of more than 120 eminent historians and museologists headed by Professor Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett from the New York University, is planned for early 2014.
