We would like the stories of the Righteous to reach young people. Today, the words and stories of wartime heroes can serve as a basis for developing civic attitudes, sensitivity to the suffering of others, openness to cultural differences and preventing antisemitism. We therefore organise meetings with witnesses of history and workshops for the youth. We also provide teaching materials for teachers and educators. Download our scripts for workshops and educational walks, our album with portraits of the Righteous or take advantage of our dictionary of terms related to the history of Polish Jews.
Walking in the footsteps of the Righteous in Warsaw
Where did Jews hide during the war? How many hideouts have been preserved until today? Perhaps you pass them by on a daily basis? You can visit these locations virtually at home, or while on a walk in the city.
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 form tutor class meetings.
We organize meetings with witnesses to history and workshops for young people.
