Central Judaica Database

The Jewish Historical Institute has the largest collection of artworks and archival material related to the history and culture of Polish Jews in Poland. After the Second World War the JHI Museum was the first institution to collect and promote the centuries-old cultural heritage of Jews. The JHI Museum collection accrued over the course of several decades (formally since 1948) – a process that continues. It currently comprises ca. 15,000 items. The oldest artifacts date back to the eighteenth century. Artifacts from the interwar period form the largest group of items.
