In 2010, the Jewish Association Czulent organized a project "A Majse"/ "Fairy tale-for the youngest", the aim of which was to introduce the children to their native culture and developing a sense of Jewish identity. Seeing how popular the book was, we decided to expand our activities aimed at children.
Our new project " Unzere Kinder / Our children " is a creative workshop aimed at children. Children of the members of the Jewish community in Krakow participate in the workshop. Classes are free of charge.
Our youngest participants in the workshop have the opportunity of learning how to be creative, patient and how to work in a group. They also learn about the culture, traditions and history of their nation and what exactly is culture, art and how to enjoy the benefits of these areas. And most importantly they are having fun together creating a small community. Classes are also conducted in areas important to the cultural life in Krakow, such as museums, galleries, theaters, etc.
Unzere Kinder is also a series of meetings in Kolanko no. 6 Cafe with fairy tales where known and respected representatives of culture, science and art read to the youngest. We intend to introduce the youngest through the literature, not only to Jewish culture, but also to the concept of tolerance and multiculturalism. The fairy tales we read are written by writers who are representatives of different nationalities and ethnic minorities. By our actions we want to follow the idea of a great teacher, thanks to whom we can speak today about something like the rights of the child; Janusz Korczak, who once wrote: "There is no child. There is a man. "
