"Personal Stories" is a series of six educational films made as part of the project called "Jewish Cultural Heritage", implemented by the POLIN Museum in Warsaw. The films are about people important to Polish-Jewish history and culture, like for example Julian Tuwim, Bolesław Leśmian, Zuzanna Ginczanka, Rachela Korn and the Żabiński family. Films which are being currently prepared will tell stories of Janusz Korczak and Irena Sendler.
The "Personal Stories" is aimed at students in grades 7-8 of primary schools and secondary schools.
We invite you to watch the films and read the information about them on the POLIN Museum website.
