The Polish and Israeli students will meet around August 19 in Warsaw, and will take part in a joint two-week internship at the Museum of the History of Polish Jews. During this time they will help organize Museum events, supporting our promotional and educational efforts. They will also have an opportunity to get to know the institution “behind the scenes” and see how our program offer is developed.

In the fall, Polish students will go to Israel for three months to study at the University of Tel Aviv.

We invite you to keep track of the students’ efforts and to take part in the activities they will prepare.
