21/05/2021

Earlier this week we took a moment to commemorate the end of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, and the destruction of the Great Synagogue on Tłomackie Street. Take a look at a special piece on display in our Core Exhibition. This particular cap from our collection has a very special history, and a connection to the Great Synagogue. It once belonged to Amelia Eiger, great-great-granddaughter of Rabbi Akivah Eger (Eiger); her husband to be, Edward, was the son of Ludwik Natanson, medical doctor and a prominent activist in the Jewish community. It was, among other things, Ludwik's efforts as President of the Jewish Community and chairman of the synagogue construction committee that resulted in erecting the Great Synagogue. There is one more element in the story of this marriage and of the two prominent families that may be regarded as symbolic: Amelia Eiger was born in 1878, the same year in which the Synagogue was inaugurated.

You can visit #POLINMuseum, and see this for yourself in the 'Encounters with Modernity,' 1772-1914 gallery.

Wilhelm Sasnal: Such a Landscape | Muzeum Historii Żydów Polskich POLIN w Warszawie

#POLINMuseum would like to announce the release of our next temporary exhibition. Debuting 17 June, 2021, the exhibition will focus on the works by Wilhelm Sasnal, one of the most outstanding contemporary Polish artists.

The exhibition will present the artist’s paintings and drawings which depict a familiar albeit somewhat remote landscape, and well-known figures against it. They show a landscape in the wake of the Shoah. The exhibition is part of POLIN Museum program activities in which artists explore the history, culture and legacy of Polish Jews.

The exhibition at POLIN Museum will be the first individual presentation of the artist’s oeuvre at a Polish museum, and will include the works completed over the course of the past two decades. It will be a major event in contemporary art, both in Poland and globally. The exposition will feature artworks on loan from the artist himself, as well as those from public and private collections in Poland (including the POLIN Museum collection) and internationally.

The anniversary of blowing up the Great Synagogue on Tłomackie Street | Muzeum Historii Żydów Polskich POLIN w Warszawie

Today marks the last day of the #WarsawGhettoUprising, and also the blowing up the Great Synagogue on Tłomackie Street. The Great Synagogue existed for mere 65 years. It was devastated already at the very onset of the Nazi occupation of Warsaw—the Germans turned it into a storehouse of furniture stolen from the ghetto residents inside the Synagogue building and at the surrounding square.

On 16 May 1943, the Synagogue was booby-trapped and then blown up by General Stroop in person. It was a sign that he had completed his mission of doing away with the Jews of Warsaw. This event marked the end of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. The ghetto area was razed to the ground.

The Great Synagogue on Tłomackie Street was a successor of the “German” synagogue on Daniłowiczowska Street.
