MyHeritage sponsors Polish museum’s resource center


MyHeritage is a sponsor of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews (Warsaw, Poland) which just opened its doors to an exciting new exhibition.

As part of our sponsorship, the recently launched MyHeritage Library Edition is available on all computers in the museum’s resource center, enabling museum visitors to gain free access to billions of historical records.

The museum, in Warsaw, documents the journey and history of Polish Jewry from medieval times to present. The museum includes exhibitions, lectures and a resource center providing access to databases to learn about the history and genealogy of Polish Jews. More information can be found here.

The core exhibition of the museum, which opened in October, is a journey through 1,000 years of the history of Polish Jews – from the Middle Ages until today.

It includes eight galleries, covering 4,300 sq.m., as it presents the heritage and culture of Polish Jews and highlights their religious and political diversity, dramatic events from the past, the Holocaust and concluding with contemporary times. The exhibit contains artifacts, paintings, interactive installations, reconstructions and models, and video projections. More information can be found here.

We’re excited to be a sponsor of the museum’s resource center to help visitors easily search their heritage and get started in family history research.

We hope this access will allow many visitors to learn more about their Polish heritage and the history of the Jewish community in Poland.
