New Gifts by Taube and Koret Foundations to Museum of the History of Polish Jews Spark Media Attention


The Museum project, a public-private partnership, is the first of its kind in Poland. The Polish government financed the building at a cost of over $70 million; the City of Warsaw donated the priceless land; and a Jewish nonprofit is in charge of the content of the Museum's educational and exhibition programs, developed by an international team of Jewish studies scholars from Poland, the US, Europe and Israel.

The Press Conference received widespread coverage from a range of media outlets around the world:
