Polish billionaire Jan Kulczyk’s company Kulczyk Holding has donated zł.20 million, or close to $6 million, for the construction of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews, reports Gazeta Wyborcza.
The total cost of construction is expected to reach zł.320 million, or around $96 million, with the museum opening its doors in 2013.
“Life is not just a business, not just economics. We must remember what was,” Kulczyk said in a statement.
The sum donated by Kulczyk is the largest gift made by an individual donor to the museum project so far.
