From time to time, we would like to remind you of the action conducted by the Museum under the slogan Saved Souvenirs, Preserved Memory, concerning objects which belonged to prisoners-of-war from World War II who were held in captivity by the Germans or the Soviets.
The Museum is looking for various artefacts – objects used or made in captivity, such as: documents, correspondence, drawings, photographs, cloths etc., regardless of their state of preservation. All donations that enrich the Museum's collections, will be secured and inventoried. In this way, they will become a source of knowledge and a bearer of the memory about the prisoners-of-war and internees, and about history as such.
Those interested in donating memorabilia are invited to contact us – any proposal will be considered as soon as possible. Once the objects have been digitised, donors will receive albums with images of the memorabilia, as well as a digital record of them.
Responsible for the collection is the Department of Collections and Conservation of the Central Museum of Prisoners of War, 4 Muzealna St., 48-316 Łambinowice, tel./fax +48 77 434 34 75, e-mail:
