Born and raised in Wrocław, Poland with family Jewish roots in Eastern Galicia, Aga is currently working on her degree in Jewish studies at the Hochschule für Jüdische Studien Heidelberg, Germany. During a year of study at the European Institute for Jewish Studies in Sweden – Paideia, Aga developed in-depth knowledge and understanding of Jewish law and tradition. In her research, she focuses on the 18th century Jewish cemetery on Gwarna Street in Wrocław (former Claassenstrasse in Breslau) and deals with questions of memory, topography, social responsibility and place-making.
Aga is an experienced project manager with a decade-long professional career in Brussels specializing in event management, communication strategies of European Union institutions and corporate social responsibility policies. Through educational, artistic and civic projects, Aga advocates for effective engagement with European Jewish heritage. Most recently, she led two volunteer projects involving the mapping and restoration of Jewish cemeteries – the “New” Jewish Cemetery on Lotnicza Street in Wrocław, and the Norra Jewish Cemetery in Stockholm. Today, together with two architects Aga leads a grass-root initiative aiming at protection and commemoration of the Gwarna Jewish cemetery in Wrocław.
