Prof. Adam Szpaderski Appointed to Gross-Rosen Museum Council

We are proud to announce that one of our researchers, Associate Professor Adam Szpaderski, Head of the Center for Research on the Economics of Memorial Sites, has been appointed to the Council of the Gross-Rosen Museum, the Nazi German Concentration and Extermination Camp (1940-1945).

Gross-Rosen Museum Council

The Council of the Gross-Rosen Museum in Rogoźnica ensures that the Museum fulfills its obligation towards the artefacts and the society, in particular with respect to collecting and providing a lasting protection of world heritage, sharing knowledge about the values and the message conveyed by the collection, dissemination of the fundamental values of history, science and culture, shaping the cognitive and esthetic sensibilities, and providing access to the collection. The Council also appraises and reviews the yearly reports and the operating plan of the Museum. Members of the Council are elected for a four-year term.

For me, the appointment to the Gross-Rosen Museum Council in Rogoźnica is a confirmation of the expertise that we have been developing in the course of our research at the Center for Research on the Economics of Memorial Sites, at SWPS University.

Associate Professor Adam Szpaderski

Professor Szpaderski utilizes theories and practice of business management to create the economics of museums and memorial sites, an innovative empirical social science that studies the effective management of museums and memorial sites, as well as their finances and macroeconomics. The new science aims to provide a set of best practices and measures of effectiveness, related to the economic, financial and management aspects of the development, preservation, commemoration and functioning of museums and memorial sites. The process involves research and promotion of management and commemoration standards of such organizations, developed in Poland and worldwide, their operational models as well as collaboration with national and international institutions, directors, fundraisers, donors, and curators.

Professor Szpaderski is a member of scientific societies in the field of economics and management. He is also a recipient of numerous awards,  and recently, he has been appointed to the jury of the prestigious Sybilla Competition, which recognizes the best museums and exhibitions in Poland.

Gross-Rosen Museum

The main goal of the Gross-Rosen Museum is to commemorate and document the history of totalitarianism in Lower Silesia, with particular emphasis on the period of World War II and Gross-Rosen, the former Nazi German concentration and extermination camp and its branches.

Konzentrationslager Groß-Rosen was one of the worst Nazi German concentration and extermination camps among all concentration camps established by Nazi Germans in Europe. It operated between 1940 and 1945, in the area of Rogoźnica, a village in the current Lower Silesia Region. It is estimated that close to 40,000 people, citizens of 23 countries, perished in the camp.
