January 27th is the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which marks the liberation of the labor and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. To commemorate this day we would like to invite you to a guided tour of the exhibition “10 Polish Cities—10 Jewish Stories”. The tour is free of charge and will take place in three languages:

16.00 – in Polish
16.30 – in English
17.00 – in German

The exhibition “10 Polish Cities—10 Jewish Stories” is based on accounts of five women and five men born in prewar Poland, who came from different backgrounds and different towns. The exhibition depicts how important historical events of the 20th century shaped the fates of these people, how the Second World War impacted their lives, and what decisions they made in post-war years. Such a perspective allows us to reach beyond numbers and dates, and to look at recent history through the fates of individuals.

Please note: on International Holocaust Remembrance Day admission is free to all Galicia Jewish Museum exhibitions.

In Polish, English, and German.
Free admission.

Other: free admission

Galicia Jewish Museum

ul. Dajwór 18

The museum saves from oblivion traces of the Jewish past in what used to be Galicia, and today lies in south-eastern Poland and western Ukraine.

The museum is located in Kraków’s district of Kazimierz, in the heart of the former Jewish district of the city, and it portrays the history and culture of Galician Jews, and commemorates the victims of the Holocaust. There are two permanent presentations of photographs: the exhibition by Chris Schwarz documents the saved remnants of the Jewish heritage of Polish Galicia and presents the places of the Shoah and post-war attempts at retaining the memory of Jewish Heritage in Poland. The museum eagerly hosts temporary exhibitions and organises events that promote knowledge of the Jewish past in Poland among children, young people, and adults.

Tickets: normal PLN 17, concessions PLN 12, senior PLN 14, family PLN 32
