"Jewish Cultural Heritage" is one of the most important projects that POLIN Museum has been running together with Polish and Norwegian partners. The acronym JCH [ŻDK in Polish] indeed stands for almost the entire programme activity of our institution in the years 2020-2024.

We conducted 10 809 events for over 6 670 000 participants.

We present you with an illustrated report summing up the past four years of our work within the framework of the JCH project. We are well aware that the activities we have carried out so far would not be possible without the support of all our partners who are engaged in the project, and without the financial support of our grant donors and the project supervisor—the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.

Hope you enjoy the read!

"Jewish Cultural Heritage" was a project implemented by POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews from March 2020 to April 2024, in partnership with Norwegian institutions: the Norwegian Center for Holocaust and Minority Studies, the European Wergeland Center, the Falstad Center and the Jewish museums in Oslo and Trondheim, as well as with the Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw.

The aim of the project was to protect and popularize the heritage of Polish Jews through educational and cultural programs. This task was made possible by a grant of EUR 10 million granted by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway under the EEA Grants and by the national budget.
