The Museum on Wheels coming to the Market Square

The Museum of History of Polish Jews POLIN and the Jewish Museum in Oświęcim are bringing the Museum on Wheels to the town’s Market Square between August 27-29.

The Museum on Wheels is a mobile educational exhibition presenting the history and culture of Polish Jews, travelling around Poland. This weekend the Museum on Wheels will land in Oświęcim, a former Jewish town with 60% Jewish population in the interwar period.

The mobile exhibition will be accompanied by different educational activities animated by the Museum’s educators and local leaders – including workshops on the history of the local Jewish community in Oświęcim.

The aim of the project is to teach audiences about the age-long coexistence of Polish and Jewish culture, and to support local leaders involved in Polish-Jewish dialogue and the protection of Jewish heritage.
