The clandestine Archive of the Warsaw Ghetto (Ringelblum Archive) is one of the most important testimonies to the life and destruction of Polish Jewry during the Second World War. The Archive was founded in 1940 on the initiative of Dr. Emanuel Ringelblum, historian and social activist.
The collected materials were hidden within the Ghetto area firstly in 1942 and then in 1943. Some of the hidden archive was unearthed in 1946 and more materials were discovered by chance in December 1950.
The Ringelblum Archive is housed in the Jewish Historical Institute (ZIH) in Warsaw.
Eleonora Bergman gained her Ph.D. in 1996 from the University of Warsaw for her thesis on synagogues in the Moorish style. She has written extensively on the history and preservation of Polish towns, and has a particular interest in researching and documenting Polish 19th and 20th century synagogues.
From 1991 she has worked at the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw, as researcher, deputy director and director (2007 to 2011). She has been author, co-author and curator of several versions of exhibition on the Ringelblum Archive (in Germany, USA, Spain and France). Since 1998 she has been an advisor on the Auschwitz-Birkenau Site Management Plan. From 2004 she has been involved in preparing the full edition of the Ringelblum Archive and is currently the coordinator of this project.
