Centropa is a non-profit historical institute that uses new technologies and digital story telling to connect 21st century students to 20th century Jewish history – and with each other. Since 2000, Centropa has interviewed 1,200 elderly Jews in 15 countries from Central and Eastern Europe, and collected and scanned 22,000 of their family photos. Centropa then turned the most compelling biographies into 50 short multi-media films, and more than a dozen exhibitions, that are being used in more than 1,000 schools in 23 countries. Every year Centropa conducts local workshops, national, and international seminars – online and offline – where teachers work with our materials , attend lectures by historians, and explore local Jewish history on site. Centropa’s Germany office was opened in 2015 and develops education programs for schools in Germany as well as Central and Eastern Europe – including seminars, films, audiowalks, exhibitions and youth competitions.

The Galicia Jewish Museum exists to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and celebrate the Jewish culture of Polish Galicia, presenting Jewish history from a new perspective and provides an innovative and unique institution located in Kazimierz, the former Jewish district of Kraków. The objectives of the museum are to challenge the stereotypes and misconceptions typically associated with the Jewish past in Poland and to educate both Poles and Jews about their own histories, whilst encouraging them to think about the future. The museum’s cultural and educational program is one of the most extensive in Poland, providing a range of services for both individual and group visitors. The educational team developed specific communicative methods that seek to challenge visitors’ perspectives. The educators of the museum are in a permanent reflective process regarding their pedagogical approach.
