If you have questions about...

  • Who is a volunteer?
    A volunteer is someone who freely works for the Museum. This is a formal definition, but we believe that volunteering is based on sharing knowledge and skills, on mutual cooperation and assistance. If you are interested in the history of the KL Plaszow Memorial site and World War II, if you identify with the Museum’s mission, if you are willing to assume obligations and take on challenges, become a volunteer.

    We operate a volunteering project system at the KL Plaszow Museum. Each project includes a set of actions planned to achieve a specific goal. Below you will find descriptions of various projects from which to choose your favourite volunteering work.
  • What does a volunteer give and receive?
    We expect volunteers to show openness, integrity and reliability. In return, we offer a working experience in a cultural institution in its initial operational phase, beginning with the exhibition arrangement process, and ending with a variety of educational and field projects. We also share our knowledge, and work in the spirit of partnership. We sign an agreement with every volunteer, modelled on the template displayed below the description of each project. Your cooperation will be documented by a certificate. We believe that team work on our dissonant heritage is meaningful and contributes considerably to our understanding of the present.
