Poland has Risen to Live
29 May–20 June 2018
The aim of the exhibition organized by the Institute of National Remembrance in connection with this year’s celebration of the 100th anniversary of regaining independence by Poland is to present the reconstruction of Polish statehood after years of partitions as the sum of the efforts and aspirations of the generation of Poles at that time – people of different social classes and political preferences, the soldiers who fought under the White Eagle on a number of fronts during the World War I, as well as politicians, social activists, teachers and artists.
The exhibition explores the armed campaign undertaken in August 1914 by the Polish Legions alongside Austro-Hungary, the Polish Corps in Russia and the Blue Army of General Józef Haller formed in France, among others thanks to extensive mobilization of the American Polish diaspora. It also presents the outline of the intense political and diplomatic activity that accompanied the struggle, the result of which was, for example, Roman Dmowski and Ignacy Paderewski signing the Treaty of Versailles, which ended World War I, on behalf of Poland.
The exhibition shows the process of the birth of the Polish state originating in November 1918, including the formation of its democratic system, crowned by the adoption of the constitution of 17 March 1921 by the Legislative Sejm. The circumstances of the formation of the borders of the Republic are remembered—in the heat of the battle with the Ukrainians over eastern Galicia, with the Czechs over Cieszyn Silesia and the Lithuanians over Vilnius and Suwalki, and as a result of the uprisings against the Germans in Greater Poland and Silesia. The victory in the war against the Bolsheviks, sealed by the Treaty of Riga on 18 March 1921, was decisive for the protection of independence and the establishment of the eastern border. Thus reborn, after 123 years of subjugation, the Rzeczpospolita was multicultural and multiethnic—it was inhabited by Poles, Ukrainians, Jews, Belarussians, Germans and other minorities.
The exhibition presents archival photos, posters and maps, accompanied by quotes from those who participated in the events of the time, including Head of State Józef Piłsudski and Prime Minister Wincenty Witos.
The premiere at the Grand Courtyard of the Royal Castle in Warsaw – Museum will precede further exhibitions in other cities in Poland. The exhibition will be accompanied by an educational program for secondary schools.
Poland has risen to live is the sixth joint exhibition and educational event organized by the Institute of National Remembrance and the Royal Castle in Warsaw in a row.
Admission is free
