The POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews is located on the site of the former Warsaw Ghetto. It was designed by Finnish architects Lahdelma & Mahlamäki and opened on April 19, 2013, commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Its permanent exhibition put forward the history of the Jewish community in Poland up to the Holocaust.
On its minimalist facade, the building uses glass fins and copper mesh.
The entrance hall features undulating walls and give as cavernous impression. The empty space is a symbol of the cracks in the history of Polish Jews. The museum's interior design was planned by London-based museum design consultancy Event Communications.
