The Białowieża branch of the Jacek Kuroń Educational Foundation continues to develop the Virtual Museum of the History of Jews in Białowieża, an online research and educational program: www.jewish-bialowieza.pl. Having supported its founding in 2016, the Association awarded the Visual Museum a second grant in 2018 to support the addition of new elements. Katarzyna Winiarska, creator of the Virtual Museum, visited Israel to conduct research in the archives of the Yad Vashem Institute and recorded interviews with descendants of Jewish families from Białowieża that will enrich the site.
