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.
Take advantage of our workshop scenarios and other useful teaching materials which can be used during history and Polish language lessons, as well as during civic and cultural education classes or during the class tutor meetings.
