The [[bios:166|Mordechai Anielewicz]]Center for the Study and Teaching of the History and Culture of Jews in Poland was founded in 1990 following an agreement between the University of Warsaw and the Jack Fliderbaum Foundation. It currently operates as a department within the Institute of History at the University of Warsaw.
The driving force behind the Anielewicz Center was Professor Jerzy Tomaszewski, who was its director until his retirement in 2001. His successor is Dr. Jolanta Żyndul.
The Center runs classes for history students as well as those from other departments who are interested in the history and culture of Polish Jews. In 2001, the thematic block "The History of Jews in Poland" was introduced, which is one of the specialisations offered by the Institute for students pursuing their Master's degrees.
On a periodic basis, the Anielewicz Center holds scientific seminars for historians and researchers of related scientific disciplines. On 8 May 2003 the Center organised the First Jewish Day at the University of Warsaw. In collaboaration with the “History and Culture of Jews in Poland” section of the Historians’ Scientific Club of the University of Warsaw, the Anielewicz Center organised the First Polish Judaistic Conference of Young Researchers. In addition, field trips are organised for students interested in the history and culture of Jews in Poland.
