Become a "Daffodil Campaign" Volunteer

Redakcja, 17th February 2017
POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews is looking for Volunteers for our "Daffodil Campaign", marking the 74th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

For the fifth time, we invite you to become a part of our communal-educational "Daffodil Campaign" on 19th April, marking the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. In past years, thanks to our Volunteers, our golden flower symbol has been worn by tens of thousands of people in Poland and abroad. This year, with your help, we want that number to grow even more!

Together, we will be handing out paper daffodils on the streets of Warsaw. This is a flower linked with Marek Edelman, one of the leaders of the Jewish Fighting Organisation (Żydowska Organizacja Bojowa). On each anniversary, he laid a bouquet of golden flowers at the Ghetto Heroes Monument. We wish to continue this tradition.

We seek Volunteers who, from 25th February to 30th April 2017, will commit themselves to this exceptional project.

You can help us during these events!

Schedule:

February – April 2017

Training, written notes and lectures, meetings and walks for Volunteers
