The travelling exhibition presenting the architectural plans of the Remembrance Museum of Land of Oświęcim Residents has been shown in local towns and villages since June. The aim of the initiative is to inform local people of the Museum’s plans and the exhibition will be open for viewing in the Osiek Culture, Readership and Sports Centre until the end of November. You are warmly invited!
The exhibition contains boards with plans and graphics of the architectural plans of the “Lagerhaus” building. It began its journey in Oświęcim where it was available for viewing for a month in the Centre for Dialogue and Prayer. It continued its journey through Brzeszcze, Kęty, Chełmek and has now finally arrived in Osiek.
As Remembrance Museum Director, Dorota Mleczko, says, “It has been our aim since the very beginnings of our existence to remain in close contact with locals in order to inform as wide a range of people as possible of the Museum. It is precisely those who live in the local area who are creating history for future generations to recall. Our Remembrance Museum’s aim is to present and honour the memory of local inhabitants’ and their heroic actions in rendering aid to the prisoners and victims of KL Auschwitz. We do hope that thanks to initiatives such as this, we will discover yet more incredible stories from WWII.”
You are also warmly invited to view the exhibition during the event “We will remember it all – the fate of Osiek inhabitants during WWII” which will be held at 5pm on 19th November 2019 in the Osiek Village Cultural Centre.
