VIRTUAL TOUR OF POLIN MUSEUM OF THE HISTORY OF POLISH JEWS
Warsaw’s renowned POLIN is a historical museum that presents the 1000 years of Jewish life in the Polish lands. Opened in 2013 as the result of an unprecedented public-private partnership of the Association of the Jewish Historical Institute, the City of Warsaw, and the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, the Museum sits within the boundaries of the Warsaw Ghetto. It is located in Muranów, a neighborhood that was once home to Warsaw’s Jewish community. The new temporary exhibit, Here is Muranów, explores this now residential district veiling a unique, multi-layered history of Warsaw. Join us for a virtual tour revealing unknown dimensions of the past, present, and the future of the City for its residents, today. Followed by a Q & A session with expert members of POLIN’s staff.
