Warsaw – Poland
host: POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews
October 13 – 16, 2013
The second edition of the Educator’s Training Programme (ETP) took place from 13 to 16 October 2013 in Warsaw. The programme was organized in close cooperation with the Łucja Koch and the staff of the hosting venue Museum of the History of Polish Jews, and with partners The Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute, the Oświęncim Jewish Center, the Marek Edelman Dialogue Center, and the Muzeum Sztuki.
A group of sixteen museum educators from all over Europe participated in an extensive four days programme with workshops, lectures and discussions on different aspects of education in Jewish museums. The first two days the participants worked in and around the new Museum of the History of Polish Jews. In Łódź director Joanna Podolska welcomed the group at the Dialogue Center and also guided the group at the historical Jewish cemetery and the Radegast Station Memorial site. The workshop at the Muzeum Sztuki, a museum for modern and contemporary art, showed new and creative approaches towards museum education in relation to art and Jewish history in Poland. On the last day the group visited the Jewish Historical Institute and its museum in Warsaw and worked with educational materials of the Oshpitzin project from the Oświęncim Jewish Center.
“The conference packed in a fantastic variety of participatory, enquiry-led and thought-provoking sessions. […] The Educator’s Training Programme was an incredibly valuable opportunity to step outside our own team, network with European colleagues and share valuable insights to similar challenges. For me, participating in the conference has been a fantastic experience professionally and personally for which I am very grateful”, says Tali Krikler from the Jewish Museum London, who participated in the programme.
