Scholar-in-residence Jacek Nowakowski, Senior Curator at National Institute for Holocaust Documentation, was born in Krakow, Poland and is the child of a Holocaust survivor. He emigrated to the United States, where he became the Director and Chief Curator of the Polish Museum of America. Jacek later moved to Washington, D.C., becoming the Director of Collections and Acquisitions at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, where he was closely involved in the implementation, design, and building of the Museum’s main permanent exhibition. He is frequently asked for expert advice for many Holocaust and museum-related projects both in the U.S. and overseas.
