Open-air exhibition at Grzybowski Square

The exhibition ZbieramyBudujemyPamiętamy (We Collect, We Build, We Remember) in Grzybowski Square, dedicated to the Museum’s permanent exhibition – currently being prepared, opened last Thursaday.

Visitors will be able to explore a project of nine thematic galleries telling the story of a divided city. Photographs from the MGW collection, accompanied by short texts, will guide us through the fate of Warsaw’s Jews from the late 19th century to the immediate post-war period, particularly the history of the Warsaw Ghetto.

We would like to thank the curators of the exhibition, Monika Mastyj and Zofia Gałązka, the authors of the texts, Professor Konrad Zieliński and Zofia Gałązka, and the people involved in providing scholarly assistance in the creation of the exhibition, Dr Martyna Grądzka-Rejak and Professor Daniel Blatman.

The exhibition was officially opened by the deputy director, Dr Katarzyna Person.

Visitors will be able to see the exhibition at Plac Grzybowski in Warsaw every day until 31 December this year. We look forward to seeing you there!


The Warsaw Ghetto Museum is an emerging institution that will soon become a permanent spot on the cultural map of Warsaw. The historical complex of the former Bersohn and Bauman Children’s Hospital, located between Sienna and Śliska streets, has been chosen as the Museum’s venue.The six-store building, after necessary adaptation work, will house nine galleries presenting the the history of Warsaw’s Jews from the second half of the 19th century, through the Holocaust, to the end of World War II. The Museum possesses a collection of nearly 20,000 artefacts, including: objects of daily use, Judaica, militaria, documents, ephemera, postcards, archaeological finds and photographs. The narrative line has been enriched with a collection of artworks that often go beyond the chronological framework and conceptualise historical issues, sharing contemporary reflections on Jewish history and the Holocaust.
