Programmes for Schools and Teachers
Educational classes for schoolchildren and youth present the 1000-year history of Polish Jews as an integral part of the history of Poland. Workshops, walking tours, competitions and meetings with the witnesses of history teach tolerance, openness, and acceptance for cultural diversity. The POLIN Museum offers exceptional educational tools: from the fascinating Core Exhibition, to temporary exhibits, to the Visual History Archive of the USC Shoah Foundation, which constitutes the world’s largest historical database of witness testimonies.
Conferences, training sessions and meetings aimed at educators offer an opportunity for teachers to deepen their understanding of the history of Polish Jews. The educational programming of the Museum is created in consultation with teachers – ambassadors of the POLIN Museum.
