The idea to create a Museum of the History of Polish Jews emerged at the Association of the Jewish Historical Institute. This idea soon secured support both in Poland and abroad. Because of the generous help of individual and institutional donors from all over the world, the works on a project of the Museum commenced in 1995 and continued as a social initiative until 2005. It was then that the Museum of the History of Polish Jews was formally instituted under the auspices of the President of the Republic of Poland, Aleksander Kwaśniewski.
