The Marek Edelman Dialogue Center
A unique glass and concrete building of the Marek Edelman Center for Dialogue at the Survivors’ Park in Lodz was opened in 2013. The place has a symbolic meaning – the trees in this park were planted by Holocaust survivors.
The Center’s mission is to promote intercultural and interreligious dialogue as well as present the content of different cultures, particularly those close to the history of the city. Special emphasis is placed in the Jewish culture; however, the organized exhibitions, panels, workshops, and lectures also refer to German, Russian, Ukrainian, Romani, or Armenian themes.
The Center conducts educational activities spreading knowledge about different cultural and religious practices. It supports the idea of tolerance and combating discrimination, as well as initiates discussions on the topic of living in a multicultural and multispecies world.

Saturday – Sunday CLOSED
BUILDING OPENING HOURS (time when exhibitions may be visited):
Monday - Friday from 11.00 to 17.00
