Currently working at Polin Museum where during the last 2 years was responsible for creation of the educational multimedia platform “Jewish Warsaw” (www.warsze.polin.pl)
Jewish Warsaw is an online multimedia guide to the Polish capital as seen through the history of its Jewish residents. Warsaw may be toured according to various scenarios: following in the footsteps of strip cartoons’ protagonists, wandering through the city in the company of Janusz Korczak or turning a walk in contemporary Warsaw – presented in the form of a blog – into a true time travel. I will briefly present each of the three parts of the platform, explaining its idea and the reason why Polin Museum have chosen to tell the history of the city through the multimedia, and who can benefit from the project.
