Children’s workshops at the Warsaw Centre for Yiddish Culture

The Centre for Yiddish Culture has the pleasure of inviting all children aged 3-8 to take part in a workshop which will take place at 11 am on Saturday, January 19th.

The classes will deal with Smocza Street in Warsaw. In the past, Smocza Street was extremely poor. It was the place where people lived in small houses which hardly differed from houses typical of the countryside. Smocza Street was also famous for its market, which, just like in the Far East, was thriving with people and stalls with plenty of various goods.


The workshop will bring back the atmosphere of the market. Children will become tradespeople who will trade in…stories made up by themselves on the basis of materials given to them by the workshop organisers. Children will talk about stories about princesses, dragons, characters from Jewish children’s fairy tales and contemporary urban legends. What will be the effect? Come and see this Saturday! The workshops will be run by Patrycja Dołowy and Anna Pietruszka-Dróżdż from MaMa Foundation.

The workshop will coincide with the Yiddish song workshop which will be held by Teresa Wrońska at the Centre for Yiddish Culture. All parents who like singing are more the welcome.

The entrance is free but the number of place is limited. If you want to participate, send an email to

The workshops have been made possible thanks to the financial support of the Polish Minster of Administration and Digitalisation.
