The building itself is pretty great. Does anyone know where most of the exhibition will come from? Will Jews living internationally make donations (ex. USA, Canada etc)?

@Ibn_Ziyad
I did Nazi any humour in that joke, Anne Frankly I couldn't stand it. It made me Führerious and out of Mein Kampfort zone. Just Reichdiculous.

Also, nice building.

http://www.jewishmuseum.org.pl/en/cm...first-meeting/

Quote:
Nearly five hundred individuals from all the Jewish organizations in Poland, Polish Jews and their descendants from around the world, and Polish friends who have for years been supporting the creation and development of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews, met for the very first time in order to celebrate the inauguration of the Museum's new building.

On April 14, an event that can without exaggeration be deemed historical took place at 6 Anielewicza St. Members of Jewish associations, foundations and religious unions from all over Poland along with their friends assembled under the roof of the newly opened Museum of the History of Polish Jews.

Nearly 15 years since the idea of creating the Museum first appeared, and six years since the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction, the chairman of the Association of the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland, Piotr Wiślicki, was finally able to organize this first meeting inside the new Museum building – a symbol of renascent Jewish life and a place where the descendants of Polish Jews should feel at home.

On this occasion, a mezuzah was also affixed at the entrance to the Museum. Its design had been chosen from over 90 projects in an international competition. It is a work by Andrzej and Maciej Bulanda, who decided to use an original material – a brick from Warsaw's pre-war Northern Distict, a place once inhabited mainly by Jews. Their inspiration came from the Warsaw Ghetto Diaries of Hillel Seidman, who writes that after the war Jews from all over the world longed to return to what had been the center of the Jewish world, the corner of Gęsia and Nalewki.

This wish can now come true. We would like the Museum to be a place that joins, instead of dividing, and where the history of Polish Jews is not only popularized, but made. We would also like the Museum to be a platform for Jewish life as well as a partner to all types of educational, social, cultural and artistic initiatives.

The guests visited the Museum's workshop rooms, temporary exhibition hall, 480-seat auditorium and media club. They also viewed the first ready element of the Core Exhibition – the replica roof of the Gwoździec synagogue.

The Sunday meeting was perhaps the first event in recent history to have brought together so many Polish Jews from such a wide variety of organizations, proving that the Museum of the History of Polish Jews is not the end of a certain road, but only its beginning.

WARSAW | Polin Museum (Formerly Museum of the History of Polish Jews Opens October 28th

Muzeum Polin Opening October 28th

The Polin Museum (formerly Museum of the History of Polish Jews) that celebrates Polish Jewish life, history and culture officially opens with all completed exhibitions in 8 new galleries on October 28th. Although by no means a physical reconstruction of the unique and brilliant Polish Jewish civilization that existed in Warsaw, it is a step in the right direction towards rekindling the spirit of this culture and the mosaic culture that once existed in pre-war Warsaw.

I'm really impressed with this building. The concrete structure inside is one of the rare examples of good looking concrete. It looks almost like concave sandstone. The details of the facade are amazing. The closer you get the better it looks. From a distance it looks a bit too boxy though. I also really like the concept of the museum, to focus on the positive aspects of the Polish-Jewish history. I think this museum will be a great success!

One small correction. On the walls it's not a concrete but some panels and a parget.

Not as iconic or leading edge as the Jewish Museum in Berlin, but perhaps that's an unfair comparison. It's an attractive building in it's own right and does justice to it's serious purpose.
