Around National Independence Day

To commemorate the 103rd anniversary of the restoration of Poland's sovereignty, there were organized a number of events throughout the country. Museum workers initiated some of them, and participated in others. We have already posted information about some of them on the Museum's Facebook page, and we are writing about others today.

There is presented our temporary exhibition Koniec i początek. Powstańcy warszawscy w niewoli niemieckiej [The end and the beginning.
