"Memory of Those Who Died Lives in Me" – a premiere

This short video tells the story of the three guardians of Jewish memory: Emanuel Ringelblum, founder of the Underground Archive of the Warsaw Ghetto, Rachela Auerbach, thanks to whom the first box of the Archive, the most important testimony of the Holocaust, was located, and Marek Edelman, whose gesture of laying yellow flowers in front of the Monument to the Warsaw Ghetto Heroes helped to reestablish memory of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in postwar Poland.

We invite you and your students to join schools around the world in commemorating the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. For curriculum materials, please go to: Educational Resources.

We encourage you to purchase our latest publication titled "What the Others Cannot See. Photographic Testimonies from Both Sides of the Warsaw Ghetto Wall 1943." It combines two albums—one with photos taken by Rudolf Damec, the other with photos by Leszek Zbigniew Grzywaczewski.

It is available for purchase at the POLIN Museum store and online.
