Jewish Museum in Oświęcim

Oświęcim, Poland

The Auschwitz Jewish Center (AJC) is the only Jewish presence in Oświęcim – the town the Germans called Auschwitz – which is primarily known as the site of the darkest tragedy of the 20th century.

In September 2000, the Auschwitz Jewish Center opened its doors to honor the former residents of Oświęcim and to teach future generations about the destruction caused by the Holocaust.
Since 2006, the Center has been affiliated with the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in New York.

The Center’s facilities include the Jewish Museum, the Chevra Lomdei Mishnayot Synagogue, the Education Center, and Café Bergson in the Kluger Family House.
