The Jewish Galicia Museum has a new app which focuses on Poland’s rich Jewish history outside of the Holocaust. Due to the pandemic the museum was not open therefore, online access to the Museum became the only way of keeping the museum functioning. The app is free to download on the museum’s website-currently only available in English: From here the app can be downloaded from Google Play for android and Apple Store for Apple products.


For the museum website go to:


The museum is photography-oriented and the photographs showcases images from Jewish and non-Jewish sources from the 19th century until today. The photographs are categorized by era: pre-1918; inter-war Poland, Communist-era Poland and Poland following tis democratization in 1989.  More photos will be added.

Eventually the museum would like to publish newspaper front pages, Yiddish theater posters and documents.

The app was built with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

It should be important to stress for iOS users out there (like me!) that the App doesn’t support those running iOS versions lower than iOS 13.

It’s a shame developers don’t include support for their Apps to run on just recent version of iOS.
