Under the name “From Białowieża to Israel, from Israel to Bialowieza”, we are continuing in 2018 a program to study the history of the Jewish community in Białowieża. As part of this project, the Museum’s creator will visit Israel on May 7 – 15, where she will conduct a query in the Yad Vashem archives and meet the families of the descendants of the Lerenkind and Halperin families and record interviews with them. The collected materials will feed the information base in the Virtual Museum of the History of Jews in Białowieża.

The project received funding from the Association of the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland.
