“Museum on Wheels” and accompanying events the Museum of the History of Polish Jews POLIN exhibition

„Museum on Wheels” is a mobile educational project that brings the history of Polish Jews to life and restores the memory of local Jewish communities. It is also an excellent platform for cooperation with local activists and institutional partners who carry out their own three-day programme of educational events accompanying the exhibition in each given town.

With its modern form of presentation, the „Museum on Wheels” exhibition offers an opportunity to experience history by the means of:

    • three-dimensional model of a shtetl which presents the sites of a typical Polish-Jewish town,
    • excerpts from statements by young Polish Jews which provide answers to the questions: who are Jews and what does it mean to be a Jew today,
    • a timeline which presents the most important events in the history of Polish Jews,
    • thanks to quotations from pre-war diaries, visitors learn more about the three languages Polish Jews had once used - Polish, Yiddish and Hebrew.
A workshop tablehas been prepared for the youngest visitors. Here, children can, among other things, touch the authentic objects from Judaica collections and write their names in Hebrew. Thanks to the constant presence of educators travelling with „Museum on Wheels”, visitors can acquire information about Jewish culture and obtain answers to questions on the Polish-Jewish relations. At the heart of the exhibition is an interactive map, prepared specifically for each locality “Museum on Wheels” visits. The map contains over a dozen points related to Jewish history, including institutions of social and religious life, service units, enterprises, as well as places of martyrdom and postwar commemoration. Thanks to the map, younger residents will learn more about the history of their town and older residents will share memories of their former Jewish neighbours. The rich educational programme- prepared in partnership with the local project coordinators - helps the visitors discover the history of their own town or village. The coordinator of the events surrounding the exhibition in Trzemeszno is Katarzyna Sudaj from The Atut Fundation
