Why do we recommend this museum?

The institute shows one of the most fascinating stories during the 2nd World War. The Ringelblum archive has been partly preserved, which we owe to the sacrifice of the creators. The exhibition captivates guests and reveals stories that sound unimaginable. For guests who want to learn as much as possible about the Jewish heritage in Warsaw and Poland, we recommend a visit to this institute in addition to the POLIN Museum.

Short description of the exchibition

The secret Ringelblum archive, which was given the cover name Oneg Shabbat, is a preserved underground archive from the Warsaw Ghetto (1940-1943). Emanuel Ringelblum headed the archival group. The collection is on display at the Institute.

In addition, there are two permanent exhibitions on the topics of “Jewish Life in Poland (Warsaw)” and “the extermination in the Holocaust”.

We would like to add: very worth seeing!
