Polish Jewish Museum Names New Director

Andrew Cudak began work as the new interim director of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews.

He was appointed to the position by Warsaw Mayor Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz.

Cudak, whose first day was Thursday, is charged with finishing the construction of the museum, completing the main exhibition and preparing to open the museum.

Cudak was previously interim director of secretariat of Euro 2012 soccer. For several years he worked in Polish television.

The Museum of the History of Polish Jews is slated to open in 2013 on the site of the former Warsaw Ghetto. It will present the history of Polish Jews and the rich civilization they created over the course of almost 1,000 years.

Last month the museum was awarded a $7 million grant from the Koret and Taube foundations.

Work on the museum began in 2005. It is a joint project of the Association of the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland, the City of Warsaw and the Polish Ministry of Culture.
