A website rich in interesting historical content – this is the latest proposal of the Remembrance Museum of Land of Oświęcim Residents for young and slightly older local history fans.
Initially, the portal was conceived as a website intended to provide assistance and substantive support to teachers in popularizing stories close to our heart. With its construction, however, new ideas began to come up, and, with their implementation, interesting content. Therefore, we can confidently also offer them to people who left school a rather long time ago.
At www.edukacja.muzeumpamieci.pl you will find unique collections of photos, stories of places, meetings with witnesses of history and educational materials that will allow you to deepen your knowledge of the land of Oświęcim.
A separate section has been dedicated to teaching, where educators can find a range of materials useful for holding interesting classes.
In addition, we have divided the portal into six sections, which we will gradually enrich with new content.
Locals’ family stories
As the name suggests, this is a place for narratives in subjective form – one in which history was remembered by people documenting the fate of their loved ones. Each story is illustrated with archival photos.
“Encounters with history…”
One of the forms of popularisation of history by the Remembrance Museum of Land of Oświęcim Residents is “Encounters with history…” These are events organised for residents of specific villages and dedicated to local heroes. In this section there are video recordings and speeches from Osiek and Brzeszcze. The Covid-19 pandemic means that plans to host more Remembrance Museum meetings have had to be postponed for the future.
This is where we have started to create a museum library with videos of lectures on local history. Here we will invite not only academics and history researchers, but also passionate connoisseurs of characters, events and places to make a video.
This is one of the more free forms of checking your knowledge. This does not mean that the questions contained in the quizzes are or will be easy. Anyway, see for yourself and test yourself with questions about the history of Auschwitz, Kęty or heroes who helped prisoners of the former Nazi German camp Auschwitz.
This is a knowledge corner designed primarily for pupils who can get to grips with specific tasks. Older people may be interested in attractive presentations dedicated to outstanding figures associated with the land of Oświęcim.
Here you will find reports and photo reports from exhibitions organised by the Remembrance Museum of Land of Oświęcim Residents.
We warmly invite you enjoy and take advantage of the materials placed on the portal:
and to come back and visit your favourite chapters again and again!
