Delet portal (Hebrew: door) gathers scanned documents from the Ringelblum Archive and interactive tools for developing educational materials – lessons, workshops and curated tours.

In 2017, a team of Polish translators, editors, historians, sociologists, and linguists, led by Prof. Tadeusz Epstein as academic editor, completed several years work on the full 37-volume edition of the Ringelblum Archive. The first volume of the English translation, Warsaw Ghetto. Everyday Life, edited by Dr. Katarzyna Person, was published.

At the Institute’s digitization studio, experts scanned documents from the Archive, which can now be accessed through the Web portal Delet (door, in Hebrew). Account holders and researchers can access to a unique collection of Jewish art and documents collected by the Oneg Shabbat group. They can create lessons and organize workshops and tours online using interactive tools. This multi-stage project extends from 2016 through 2018.

The Delet Web portal is a project of the Association of the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland and the Jewish Historical Institute, with the support of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of Poland, as part of Digital Culture 2016–2018.
