Discover the History of Polish Jews (2 h)

The whole Core Exhibition: in 8 galleries is presented a thousand-year history of Polish Jews from the Middle Ages to the modern times.

The Story of Polish Jews in the 20th century  (1,5 h)

The last 3 galleries of the Core Exhibition that are devoted to the interwar period, World War II, Holocaust and postwar period

The Shoah and its commemoration

This in-depth visit to the Holocaust and Postwar galleries explores the history of the Holocaust and how it has been commemorated. In the Holocaust gallery, we focus on documentary evidence from the ghettos in Warsaw, Łódź, and Kovno, resistance, Polish-Jewish relations, and conflicting historical interpretations. In the Postwar gallery, we focus on responses to the genocide, including war crime trials, commemorations in Poland and abroad, and public debates dealing with anti-Jewish violence during and after the Holocaust.

Jewish holidays

Discover the Jewish holidays, from the new year in the autumn to Passover in the spring. We begin in the main hall and travel through the first six galleries, from 965 to 1939. Explore Jewish customs, foods, games, objects and memories connected with the Sabbath, Hanukkah, Sukkot, Purim, and other holidays. Standing under the painted ceiling of the wooden synagogue, we can see the zodiac signs and discuss the Jewish calendar. Discover the story behind the names of the holidays – Feast of Tabernacles, Simchat Torah, and Yom Kippur – connections between Passover and Easter. Learn how to build a booth for Sukkot and play a game of nuts for Passover. Suitable for kids and families with children.

Life

Explore the Jewish life cycle, from birth to death, from the medieval period to the present. Highlights include Jewish weddings, their transformations during the 19th century and an extraordinary Hasidic wedding in 1931. Hear early recordings of Jewish wedding music. Discover customs and objects associated with childbirth, including amulets and naming traditions, as well as the bar mitzvah, when boys reach the age of 13, and practices and objects connected with death, including a rare 18th-century funeral alms box.
