The Jewish Museum Project

Giraltovce, Sept. 2010

By Eng. Gabi Lana


The activities during the year 2010 were concentrated in the advancement of our mini-museum  project.


I have collected items from  friends and with the help of volunteers I have sent them to our big friend Peter.


In September 2010 we opened those items in the delivered packages and together with a recruited team we arranged a temporary exhibition.

On this occasion Jan Juris, the primator, gave us a promise for an allocation of a proper room for the permanent exhibition.

This will be in a part of the building of Obecny Dom. (A photo of the Obecny dom appears in the Political History chapter of this site.)
