Museum of the History of Polish Jews
MUSEUM OF THE HISTORY OF POLISH JEWS
Two decades in the making, Warsaw’s POLIN: Museum of the History of Polish Jews recently unveiled to the world its eight-gallery Core Exhibition, showcasing 1,000 years of Jewish life in Poland. The Koret Foundation hosted a delegation of members of its board and numerous community leaders in celebratory and educational events in Warsaw surrounding the museum’s opening.
The museum, which stands on the historic site of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, memorializes and perpetuates Jewish life in Poland. Once home to the world’s largest Jewish community from which the majority of Jews living across the Diaspora descend, Poland is today enjoying a resurgence of Jewish life.
