After a two-year break caused by the pandemic, the Stutthof Museum in Sztutowo and the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum have again organised a Polish museum professionals’ seminar (the 11th-13th edition) – the Remembrance Forum. The event, which lasted from 6 to 9 September, was also attended by employees of the CMJW.
The seminar, as each year, provided an opportunity to present research, exhibit, educational, conservatory and popularisation activities of individual museums, and, at the same time, the integration of the museum community.

Dr. Violetta Rezler-Wasielewska (Director of the Museum) and Dr. Anna Czerner (from the Research Department) delivered a lecture on Place as a witness, exhibit and context – challenges of the work on the new exhibition of the Central Museum of Prisoners-of-War.
