Neighbours – Witnesses. Objects, People, Stories
The aim of the program is to form the younger generation’s sensitivity to cultural diversity and to engender respect for witnesses of history. We draw on artefacts from our collection, oral history resources and internet projects. Activities include the temporary exhibition Biographies of Things. Gifts in the Collection of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews, and interviews with witnesses, including Righteous Among the Nations and Holocaust Survivors. Within the framework of the Virtual Shtetl project we document pre-war and contemporary Jewish culture in Poland. The resources thus gathered allow us to develop educational materials for children, young people and teachers.
Partner: the HL-Center. Project carried out in cooperation with the Jewish Museum in Oslo.
