The Auschwitz Jewish Center is home to an extensive collection of artifacts that preserves the memory of Jewish life in Oświęcim. In each issue of our newsletter, we feature one artifact in our collection, managed by Dr. Artur Szyndler.
This Ner Tamid (Hebrew: eternal light) was donated in honor of Pesach Hollander, the owner of a wine store on Kolejowa Street in Oświęcim. He was a long-time member of the town council and the son of a local rabbi. Mr. Hollander passed away in 1936.
The Auschwitz Jewish Center is operated by the Museum in Oświęcim, Poland. Click here for additional blog entries by and about the Auschwitz Jewish Center. All Fall 2019 newsletter articles are found here.
