Polish Jewry Museum Over-Budget, Delays Opening

By: JTA

The Museum of the History of Polish Jews has gone over budget and the official opening of its permanent core exhibition has been pushed back.

The official opening was delayed until the fall of 2014, the museum’s Virtual Shtetl web portal reported Tuesday. It had been scheduled to open earlier next year.

The museum is seeking an extra $2.5 million — half each from the state and the city of Warsaw, according to Virtual Shtetl.

Museum acting director Andrej Cudak spelled out the financial shortfall last week at a meeting of the Culture and Media Commission of the Sejm, or Polish Parliament.

The museum is a public-private institution whose construction was largely financed by the state and the city. It opened its building in April, but without the core exhibition.

It currently hosts cultural and educational programs as well as temporary exhibits.

Cudak said in a statement posted on the Sejm website that the museum’s core exhibit will be ready by June, but its opening would still require “considerable mobilization of forces and resources.”

    rather than a musueam, they should use the money to restore the cemataries that they destroyed and memorialize those that they murdered.
