The opening of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, led by the eminent museologist Jeshajahu Weinberg, inspired the idea of creating a Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw. Dr. Grażyna Pawlak, then vice-director for development at the Association of the Jewish Historical Institute, took part in the opening ceremony, held on 22 April 1993. A modern narrative museum, retelling the history of the Holocaust, gave her the idea for a museum in Warsaw that would extend that narrative by including the story of Jewish life before the Shoah.
