Education and resources
We provide educational and resource materials aimed at promoting knowledge about the history of Poles rescuing Jews during the Second World War and the German occupation of Poland.
Our aim is for the stories of the Righteous Among the Nations and the Survivors to reach young people. The accounts and stories of the heroes from the period of German occupation convey the history that we know from textbooks, but told from the point of view of an individual.. They can also help people develop civic attitudes, sensitivity to the suffering of others, openness to cultural differences and opposing antisemitism and xenophobia. At POLIN Museum, we organise meetings with witnesses to history and workshops for young people. We also provide educational materials for teachers and educators to use during school classes.
Those of you who would like to learn more about the Righteous can take advantage of our collection of source materials – the bibliography of works dedicated to the subject, memoirs and reports, press articles as well as our film archive and information about the archival resources.
