"I love You, see you..." - we invite you to visit the new temporary exhibition

A unique exhibition has been on display at the Museum’s Opole seat since 14 March. It tells about love during the war and captivity. The exhibition is made up of accounts, letters, memoirs and museum objects carefully selected from our, but also the Katyń Museum’s and the Warsaw’s Museum of Literature’s collections.

The authors of the idea behind the exhibition are Dr. Anna Czerner and Dr. Kamil Weber from the Research Department. During their historical research, they found poignant stories of women and men whose affection was tested by the Second World War, and of people trying to build their relationships anew after years of separation. The presented subject does not omit difficult and non-obvious themes: loneliness, emancipation or feelings about the enemy. To facilitate understanding the context, there are comments made by a sociologist and a psychologist included in the exhibition.

The attractiveness of the exhibition is enhanced by the exhibits. They come from the collections of the three aforementioned museums and various families archives. These include letters, graphics and photographs. There is also a large lot of personal items with sentimental overtones like mascots, jewellery or everyday objects made with the other loved one in mind.

The exhibition can be viewed at the Museum’s Opole seat until 14 June 2024. We invite you to visit the exhibition from Monday to Friday from 8.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.!
