Prof. Hanna Zaremska (Institute of History, Polish Academy of Sciences) will deliver a lecture entitled A Historian in the Museum. The Middle Ages Gallery of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews.

Whence and when did Jews arrive in the Polish lands? Why did they stay? How does one describe 500 years of history on 300 m²? These and other questions will be answered by Prof. Hanna Zaremska – medievalist, author of numerous publications devoted to the medieval history of Polish Jews. Prof. Zaremska is also the author of the concept and narrative of the First Encounters gallery, which describes the history of Jews in the Polish lands from the 10th to the beginning of the 16th centuries.


The cycle of lectures on the Core Exhibition allows visitors to get to know about its contents and its backstage before the grand opening in 2014. Each month the experts and the curators tell about challenges which they faced during their work on the galleries of the Core Exhibition.
