Faye Sigman “Woman of Valor” Lecture

The Between Hope and Despair:
POLIN Museum of the History of the Polish Jews

Facing the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes on the site of the Warsaw ghetto and prewar Jewish neighborhood, POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews completes the memorial complex. At the monument we honor those who died by remembering how they died. At the museum we honor them—and those who came before and after—by remembering how they lived. This lecture explores the creation of POLIN Museum and its multimedia narrative exhibition a journey of a thousand years, and its potential to be an agent of transformation that can move an entire society forward.
