"Around Us a Sea of Fire. The Fate of Jewish Civilians During the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising" exhibition

It’s human to fear, it’s human to suffer, it’s human to oppose evil. In 2023, we invite you to an exhibition which we organize in cooperation with the Holocaust Research Center to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

The remaining inhabitants of the ghetto, approximately 50,000 "civilian" Jews spent many weeks hiding in shelters and bunkers. Against the despair, loneliness, starvation, thirst and fear, they fought for each and every "day, hour, minute." Their quiet resistance was just as important as the resistance of those with guns in their hands. They remained "invisible" for many days – they hid underground and thus refused to comply to German orders. It is precisely their story – the story of the "invisible" ones – that we want to retell in the exhibition.

The exhibition is held between April 18 2023 and January 8 2024 in the Museum of the History of Polish Jews, 6 Mordechaja Anielewicza  St.
