To mark the 100th anniversary of the restoration of Polish sovereignty, the Historical Museum of the City of Kraków (MHK) in its branch of the Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory holds a temporary exhibition Think of an alias for yourself…
The exhibition tells the story of a portion of the young generation who were born in the early years of the Second Polish Republic and spent the time of their youth during the tragic days of German occupation. Their patriotic attitude was influenced by their teachers, tutors, and parents, many of whom had taken up arms to fight for Poland’s return onto the map of Europe.
It is not a monographic exhibition — it draws attention to selected aspects of the life during German occupation of Kraków. Its charactery is mostly anthropological. One of its aims is to present the personal experience of the people involved in underground resistance throughout World War II. The exhibition features written memoirs by seven young Polish people, in 1939 aged between 13 and 16, who lived in Kraków and served as soldiers of the Home Army during II World War — as they grew to assume their duty to the state and to the society in an extremely unfavourable and dramatically menacing system.
