Stories of Polin Needs You!

Perhaps you weren't able to make it to the recent opening of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw. Me neither.

Sad, I know. But, even if I/you can't be there, we can make our presence felt. The Museum is sponsoring a new project called Stories of Polin. Stories of Polin will allow people all over the world to connect with the museum, and each other, by exploring their connection to Poland and to Jewish life.

What exactly is Stories of Polin about?
Share your history. Reflect on your encounter with Jewish culture and history – people, family or friends or heroes, stories you’ve heard and books you’ve read. What did you find inspiring? Write about it. Send a short movie, an animation, a photograph, a drawing, or a piece of music. Inspire others.

The twenty most interesting stories will be on display in the Museum in 2015. In other words, you'll be famous. MUSEUM FAMOUS!!!   What are you waiting for???

Stories of Polin invites everyone interested in the history and culture of Polish Jews to share their stories. What’s your story?

For almost a thousand years, Poles and Jews have lived together in this place. They draw from each other’s rich cultures, experiences, and different perspectives. Today, Polish Jews live not only in the land of their ancestors, but also form a diaspora around the world.
