The Daffodil Campaign

POLIN Museum created the Daffodils Campaign to commemorate the Warsaw ghetto uprising. Every year on April 19th, hundreds of volunteers hand out paper daffodils to raise awareness of the uprising and its significance. Marek Edelman, a leader of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising who survived the uprising and remained in Poland, would receive a bouquet of yellow daffodils from an anonymous person on April 19th, the day the uprising broke out in 1943. He would lay them at the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes in memory of those who fought and died. The paper daffodils, which people wear on this day, are inspired by this custom.

The Oneg Szabat Program

In Autumn 1940, a group of several dozen people living in the Warsaw Ghetto began to collect and edit an extensive account of the fate of Polish Jews under German occupation.

At that time they weren't yet aware that increasing persecution will develop into mass extermination of their nation, and that the work which they decided to pursue will become the most important testimony of the Holocaust. They held their meetings on Saturdays, hence the name Oneg Shabbat – "the joy of Sabbath" in Hebrew.

The Jewish Historical Institute and the Association of the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland in 2017 launched the ONEG SZABAT PROGRAM in order to continue dr. Ringelblum and his associates' calling – to save the memory of people who perished in the Holocaust.
