It is an innovative exhibition showing not only the historical background to the events, but also the experiences of people who have been affected by them. 

  • 9 March - 24 September 2018

"Estranged: March '68 and Its Aftermath" exhibition, to be shown between 9 March and 24 September 2018, will explain the causes and the course of the anti-Semitic campaign that culminated in the expulsion of about 13,000 Poles of Jewish descent from Poland.

A metaphorical installation drawing upon the 1960s aesthetics of Warsaw's Gdański Railway Station will be the focal point of the space describing the departures. It is a space of saying goodbye to Poland, where visitors will be able to hear oral history interviews. Separate sections will describe the life of refugees after leaving Poland.

The upper temporary exhibitions room will host an installation entitled March Archive, made up in the form of display cases containing items related to goodbyes and departures from Poland.

Apart from stories about the historical events, we will also present artistic works that interpret the March developments and emotions related to them.
