The Board of Directors of the American Friends of POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews foundation is deeply concerned by the long delay in appointing Prof. Dariusz Stola as Director of POLIN Museum since he won the competition for the position in May 2019. The three founders of POLIN Museum – the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage City of Warsaw and Association of the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland – agreed to an open competition for the position, and the Minister of Culture agreed to accept the result of the competition and to appoint the winner as the director of POLIN Museum. During the four months that have passed since the winner Prof. Stola was chosen the Minister of Culture has not yet executed the appointment, which he agreed to do. The Board of Directors of the American Friends of POLIN Museum urges the Minister of Culture to fulfill his obligation to appoint Prof. Stola as Director of POLIN Museum Director without further delay.
