The Oneg Szabat Program

In Autumn 1940, a group of several dozen people living in the Warsaw Ghetto began to collect and edit an extensive account of the fate of Polish Jews under German occupation.

At that time they weren't yet aware that increasing persecution will develop into mass extermination of their nation, and that the work which they decided to pursue will become the most important testimony of the Holocaust. They held their meetings on Saturdays, hence the name Oneg Shabbat – "the joy of Sabbath" in Hebrew.

The Jewish Historical Institute and the Association of the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland in 2017 launched the ONEG SZABAT PROGRAM in order to continue dr. Ringelblum and his associates' calling – to save the memory of people who perished in the Holocaust.
