Auschwitz Jewish Center in Poland

The Auschwitz Jewish Center (AJC) is a museum, education center, and synagogue in Oświęcim, Poland. Located just three kilometers from the Auschwitz Birkenau camp complex, the Center is the only Jewish presence near Auschwitz. The Chevra Lomdei Mishnayot Synagogue, the sole remaining synagogue in the once predominantly Jewish town, serves as a haven where visitors to the camps can memorialize those who perished in the Holocaust. The Center offers exhibitions, lectures, and educational programs that teach the local community and visitors from around the world about Polish-Jewish history and the town’s vibrant Jewish society that was obliterated by the Nazis.
