"Katyn #We Remember" - Vernissage of the Exhibition
We celebrated the 80th anniversary of the Katyn Massacre on 13 April 2020. We decided to commemorate this event in a particular way. We created an exhibition – "Katyn #We Remember".
The opening of the exhibition took place in the atrium of the Church of St. Casimir, the King at St. Casimir 2 str. in Bialystok on June 10, 2020.
The exhibition will be open until 10 August 2020. Remember that there are special restrictions regarding the epidemiological situation and we need to avoid large groups of people.
At the same time we encourage you to watch a virtual part of the project: www.katynpamietamy.com
The subject of the Katyn Massacre is highly significant for all Poles. Therefore the exposure "The Katyn Memorial" will be one of the most moving elements of the Sybir Memorial Museum's permanent exhibition. The "Memorial" will be located in the basement of the former military warehouse at Węglowa 1 str. in Białystok, where our headquarters are located. There we will see plaques with names of the victims, which emerge from the darkness. The foggy light shining through tree trunks will reveal a silhouette of a kneeling Polish officer waiting for the fatal shot. Also items taken out of graves will be presented on the exposure.
The project "Implementation of a Permanent Exhibition and Purchase of Equipment for the Needs of the Sybir Memorial Museum" is implemented under the measure "Protection of Cultural Heritage and Development of Cultural Resources" - the Operational Program Infrastructure and Environment 2014–2020, the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
