The core exhibition at POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews has been enriched with a new installation. It presents the stories of Jewish residents of several Polish towns who at the time of the Second World War were imprisoned in the ghettoes.

Warsaw ghetto is the most widely-known, yet the Germans established six hundred sealed-off quarters for the Jewish minority, among others in Lwów, Łódź, Przemyśl, Radom, Rzeszów and Tarnów. The first ghetto was established eighty-one years ago, on 8 October 1939.
