"Jewish Cultural Heritage" is one of the most important projects that POLIN Museum has been running together with Polish and Norwegian partners. The acronym JCH [ŻDK in Polish] indeed stands for almost the entire programme activity of our institution in the years 2020-2024.

The first activities carried out as part of the JCH project in March 2020 coincided with the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Today, half-way through the project, we have already conducted circa 4,500 events for over 1.7 million participants.

We present you with an illustrated report summing up the past two years of our work within the framework of the JCH project. We are well aware that the activities we have carried out so far would not be possible without the support of all our partners who are engaged in the project, and without the financial support of our grant donors and the project supervisor—the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.

Hope you enjoy the read!

"Jewish Cultural Heritage" – Summary of Activities March 2020-February 2022

"Jewish Cultural Heritage" is a project run by POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews from March 2020 through April 2024 in partnership with Norwegian institutions: the Norwegian Center for Holocaust and Minority Studies, the European Wergeland Centre, the Falstad Centre and the Jewish Museums in Oslo and Trondheim, as well as the Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute. The project aims to protect and popularise the heritage of Polish Jews through the implementation of educational and cultural programmes.

The "Jewish Cultural Heritage" project is realised thanks to the grant of 10 million Euro from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway as part of the EEA Fund, and to the state budget.
