Yes well remembered, I think thats the one.
As you will know, to say they are set in their ways is an
understatement, although to be fair I think Andrew is doing a decent
job in the circumstances - i.e. often on his own. To me the Museum is
chronically underused and publicised (my Dad would say that certain
circles have previously tried to keep it deliberately this way - a
private club almost)and will remain so unless a very generous
benefactor can be found.
Regarding funding, unfortunately the very people who should have done
more in the past to support this (i.e. the Polish Community)have
often in the past not been prepared to - a sad fact, but
unfortunately true. A lot could be learnt from other cultures and
religions on how to publicise your cause - Jewish.gen.organisation,
being a prime example of how to do it.
In view of what is there, it is very sad that such a collection of
treasures remains largely unknown outside a relatively small circle.
