22/11/2023

Today is the birthday anniversary of film director and screenwriter, creator of inter-war Polish mega productions, Józef Lejtes. Józef Lejtes was born on 22 November, 1901 in Warsaw. He came from a well-off, assimilated Jewish family. Brought up in the spirit of Polish patriotism, he sympathised with Piłsudski's movement while still at school, and joined the army at the first opportunity. He took part in the Battle of Warsaw in 1920. He spoke bitterly about his parting with the army, because, together with 17,000 other Jewish officers and soldiers, volunteers and conscripts, he was interned for a short time in a camp in Jabłonna.
📽After the demobilisation, he started studying philosophy at Jagiellonian University in Kraków. During the summer holidays after his second year, in university he came to the conclusion that, "film is his destiny." In order to fulfil his dream, he enrolled in a photography school in Vienna. He became an assistant to the director Mano Kertesz Kaminer (Michael Curtiz), who became famous a few years later with Casablanca.

21/11/2023

Today marks the birthday anniversary of Emanuel Ringelblum. Emanuel Ringelblum is most widely known as creator of the Underground Archive of the Warsaw Ghetto, commonly referred to these days as the Ringelblum Archive. He was a historian, and a social and political activist. A circle of intellectuals he set up under the name of "Oyneg Shabes" grew to become a research institute of sorts, documenting day by day the life and death of Polish Jews. Emanuel Ringelblum was born on 21 November 1900 in Buczacz in Podolia to a traditional Jewish family. His father was a grain merchant. During the First World War the Ringelblum family had to move to Nowy Sącz, where Emanuel passed his baccalaureate exam. He graduated in history from the University of Warsaw, and in 1927 defended his doctoral thesis written under the supervision of Marceli Handelsman. The thesis was later published as a book titled, "Jews in Warsaw. From the earliest times until the last exile in 1527."

"There’s no Jewish history without Polish history, and there’s no Polish history without Jews." These words of Professor Jakub Goldberg, who symbolically combined the two historical narratives that had accompanied their author throughout his life. Today we commemorate the 12th anniversary of his passing of his Holocaust survivor (15.11.2011).
Jakub Goldberg was born in 1924 in Łódź, and spent the war time years in Łódź ghetto. It was in 1944 where he was sent to a few concentration/labor camps. 1945, following the evacuation from the camp in Meuselwitz, he was forced to be in a death march. After the war, he returned to Łódź following a convalescence, he
passed his matura (final exam), and graduated from the history department.

Goldberg carried out pioneering studies on communities, demography, conversions, the economy of communities and, perhaps most importantly, the legal status and place of Jews in the society of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Researchers continue to draw on the important output of this outstanding Polish-Jewish historian to this day.

📍 Learn about the dates and locations for next year installments of markers: https://polin.pl/en/new-markings-jewish-cemeteries-poland

📍 By 2024, new signage for Jewish cemeteries will appear in each of the 16 provinces in Poland, and will include educational workshops for for both elementary and high school age students.
___
The initiator of the program is the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
The event was held within the framework of the "Marking of Jewish Cemeteries in the Republic of Poland" program implemented by the National Heritage Institute and financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage. The presentation of the cemetery markings is the result of the cooperation of the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews.

The ceremonies and accompanying program are realized within the framework of the "Jewish Cultural Heritage" program, and are made possible thanks to a grant awarded to POLIN Museum by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway within the framework of the EEA Fund and the national budget.
The aim of the project is to protect and popularize the heritage of Polish Jews through educational and cultural programs.

Yesterday marked the birthday anniversary of illustrator, Jan Marcin Szancer (Kraków, 12/11/1902). Szancer was primarily known for his multi-colored illustrations. He graduated from the Kraków Academy of Fine Arts. He was the editor and cover illustrator for a children’s magazine called "Świerszczyk." During his career he illustrated around 200 books, including Henryk Sienkiewicz’s, "Trilogy," Adam Mickiewicz’s, "Pan Tadeusz," and Jan Brzechwa’s, "Pan Kleks" series, which made Szancer famous.

Szancer survived WW2 mainly in Warsaw. He sketched propaganda posters for the Home Army. During the Warsaw Uprising he was deported to a transit camp, and then to labour camp in Maków Podhalański. Despite the War, Szancer didn’t stop drawing. The most colorful illustrations were created during the darkest periods of his life. He also wrote fairy tales and created theatre and film set design. After the war he became the first artistic director of Telewizja Polska (the Polish broadcasting company).
Szancer died in 1973, and is buried in .

Today marks the 105th anniversary of Poland regaining its independence (11.11.1918). 🇵🇱🇵🇱🇵🇱. The resurrection of an independent Polish state in 1918 was the result of the struggle of several generations of Poles, and the social and mental transformations that had taken place in the previous era. It was groundbreaking that Poland, with its principles and legal foundations, was reborn in 1918 as a democratic state. The manifesto of the Provisional Government of the Polish Republic of 7th November 1918 proclaimed that:

"(...) as of today, we proclaim, in Poland, the complete political and civil equality of all citizens without distinction of origin, faith and nationality, freedom of conscience, print, speech, assembly, marches, associations, trade unions and strikes (...)."

The rebuilt Polish state, once again, contained the largest concentration of the Jewish diaspora in Europe. The Second Polish Republic was home to nearly a third of Europe's Jews, and about 20% of the world's Jewry.

"Hello, my name is Chelsy, and I'm a post-grad student from Harvard University; I'm currently based out of Italy. I'm working on a photojournalism project for my degree, and it's one of the reasons I am here at POLIN today. I chose this Museum, because I already visited it last year, and really liked it back then.
My favorite part about POLIN was the number of artifacts that are placed throughout the Core Exhibition; especially the interior of the synagogue. I grew up in a Jewish household, and I really like the way this Museum portrays the struggle of the Jews throughout the last millennia."

Today marks the 85th anniversary of "Kristallnacht." From 9-10 November 1938, German N***s vandalized and burned 171 synagogues, desecrated many cemeteries, looted and destroyed some 7,500 stores and businesses - simply because they belonged to Jews. The nickname "Kristallnacht" comes from the glass from shattered exhibitions littering the ransacked streets.

The events of "Kristallnacht" also affected the Jewish community in Kołobzreg. Learn more about Kołobzreg

Today marks the death anniversary of Shloyme Zangvil Rapoport (8.11.1920). Shloyme Zangvil Rapoport or 'Sh. An-ski' was born in 1863 into a traditional Jewish family. Like many Jews from his generation, he underwent a difficult and complex transformation from the traditional world of East European Jews to the secular Jewish-Russian intelligentsia. He is the most famous for the play he wrote, "The Dybbuk," which has become one of the most popular plays ever staged in Jewish theatres.

01/11/2023

Today marks the birthday of Polish-Israeli author Ida Fink (1 November, 1921 to 27 September, 2011). Ida Fink was born in (today , Ukraine) into a wealthy, assimilated, secularised Jewish family. When the Germans seized the town (on 4 July, 1941), she was studying at the Academy of Music in Lwów. The Germans exterminated almost the entire local Jewish community, successively deporting its members to the extermination camp in Bełżec.

In order to survive, Fink took a chance on the most paradoxical plan. She obtained documents to go to work in Germany (thanks to the help of her father’s patient). She wanted to blend in with the throngs of forced labourers sent to different parts of the Reich. She described her wartime experiences in, "The Journey," and in some of her short stories. Eventually she would end up in a forced labor camp until the end of the war.

After the war she moved to Israel where she began to write about the horrors of the Holocaust. When writing, she did not – as she herself said – use her imagination. She relied exclusively on real messages, “scraps of someone else’s time.”

Tomorrow is your last chance to experience the temporary installation located at the corner of Grzybowska and Żelazna Street in Warsaw. The installation titled, "Two sides of the wall," recalls the memory of the Jewish population that was imprisoned in the Warsaw ghetto during World War II. The installation aims to encourage passers-by to ponder over the fate of Jewish civilians that experienced the Uprising, and to acquaint themselves with the stories of those who had survived the sea of fire.

This is part of the commemoration program of the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, which fell on 19 April. It is also connected with our temporary exhibition, "Around Us A Sea of Fire."

We welcome you to POLIN Museum!

This is the official English page of POLIN Museum, in Warsaw, Poland.

Facing the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes, POLIN Museum is located on the site of the Warsaw ghetto and prewar Jewish neighborhood. POLIN Museum restores the memory of what was once the largest Jewish community in the world. At the heart of POLIN Museum is a multimedia narrative exhibition presenting the history of Polish Jews, a journey of a thousand years. POLIN Museum recovers the historic diversity of Poland and stimulates dialogue in the spirit of mutual understanding and respect. The idea to create a Museum of the History of Polish Jews emerged at the Association of the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland. Since its grand opening in 2014, POLIN Museum has won the 2016 European Museum of the Year Award, 2016 European Museum Academy Prize, and many other prizes.
