By AEJM / Ana Cahen-Eden on

The Galicia Jewish Museum in Kraków, Poland, prepared a small exhibition about Ukrainian war-refugees who arrived to Kraków. It could be presented both inside and outdoor.

We would be delighted if any of the AEJM institutions would be interested in presenting this small exhibition at their locations, as a symbolic sign of support for Ukrainian people. Visit the travelling exhibition page for more information or contact Jakub Nowakowski at nowakowskijakub@galiciajewishmuseum.org.
