Women's Week in Opole. Invitation to the Museum

As part of the first edition of Women's Week in the capital of our region, there are planned as many as 48 events. Among the lecturers, workshops and various forms of activity, one can find also an interesting offer prepared by our Museum. It is a meeting under the title Łokciami pchać się do życia. Historie Maliny, Pączka i Wirty [To elbow their way through life. The stories of Malina, Pączek and Wira], which will take place on 9 March at 5 p.m., in our Opole seat.

The event's heroines will be three, among a few thousands, women – participants of the Warsaw Uprising: Jadwiga Beaupré, code name Malina, Wanda Traczyk-Stawska, code name Pączek and Barbara Lewandowska, code name Wirta. The biographies of these extraordinary women are linked by a prisoner-of-war episode in the Lamsdorf camp, but the participants of the meeting will also learn what Jadwiga, Wanda and Barbara did during the Uprising, how they coped with the hardships of captivity, and how they fought for themselves - clashed with conventions, gender stereotypes and social expectations - after the war. This story, in the form of a conversation, will be told by Dr. Anna Czerner, Dr. Violetta Rezler-Wasielewska and Dr. Piotr Stanek.

You are invited to the meeting by Dr. Iwona Konopnicka, President of the Association of Friends of the Central Museum of Prisoners-of-War and Dr. Violetta Rezler-Wasielewska, Director of the Museum. Attention: the programme of the event includes a nice surprise!

The Women's Week in Opole is initiated by the Women's Council of the City of Opole supported by the Centre for Civic Dialogue in Opole and the Social Activity Centre. The event enjoys the media patronage of Ekovision TV.
