Lamsdorf and the Silesian Uprisings and the Plebiscite. Invitation

After the April episode of the Łambinowice Museum Meetings, which took place at the site of the former camps where the new educational expositions, Place with a scar, is placed, the May instalment of the series will take place, as usually does, at the Museum seat at 4 Muzealna Street.

The topic of the meeting Na uboczu. Lamsdorf w czasie powstań śląskich i plebiscytu (1919–1921) [Out of the way. Lamsdorf during the Silesian Uprisings (1919-1921)] refers to important events taking place in Upper Silesia at that time. It is no coincidence that it was proposed immediately after the anniversary of the Third Silesian Uprising, which started on the night of 2/3 May 1921.

The meeting will be headed by Dr. Piotr Stankek, Head of the Research Department of the Museum, who is also the author the last year’s publication having the same title as, scheduled for 4 May, the Łambinowice Museum Meeting. Nevertheless, the author will focus his attention on the German military and camp complex in Lamsdorf, and precisely on the role it played, being the backstage of the fight for the future of Silesia.

To the event, which will start at 5 p.m., on 4 May, you are invited by Dr. Iwona Konopnicka, President of the Association of Friends of the CMJW, and Dr. Violetta Rezler-Wasielewska, Director of the Central Museum of Prisoners-of-War. The event enjoys the honorary patronage of  Tomasz Karpiński, Mayor of the Łambinowice Commune.
