Located in Oświęcim, Poland, less than two miles from Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Auschwitz Jewish Center (AJC) is a satellite of the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust.

Learn about 400 years of Jewish History in Oświęcim. Visit Oświęcim’s only surviving synagogue.

The Auschwitz Jewish Center, situated in the shadow of the camps, juxtaposes the enormity of the destruction of human life with the vibrant histories of the Jewish people who once lived in the adjacent town and throughout Poland.

In addition to exhibitions, an array of programs, including lectures, workshops, tours, and cultural events, the Center also offers a range of fellowships and internships.

Customized programs in Poland for academic and private groups of all sizes can be arranged. For more information, please contact Yael Friedman at yfriedman@mjhnyc.org.
