Internship Opportunity in Poland

The Galicia Jewish Museum in Krakow, Poland is calling for 2017 interns. The Galicia Jewish Museum exists to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust, to celebrate the Jewish culture of Polish Galicia, and to present Jewish history from a new perspective. The objectives of the Museum are to challenge the stereotypes and misconceptions typically associated with the Jewish past in Poland, and to educate both Poles and Jews about their own histories while encouraging them to think about the future.

The Museum internship program offers in-depth insight into the working of a growing and dynamic organization. Interns are fully immersed in the everyday working of the Museum. This allows them to gain practical experience in a thriving cultural institution whilst focusing on the preservation of Jewish and Holocaust memory in both a Polish and international context.

Internships are for a recommended minimum of eight weeks, and may be extended subject to mutual agreement. They can take place throughout the year, and are highly competitive. This means that prospective candidates are encouraged to apply as early as possible. All internships are unpaid.
