Poland’s ‘War to Victory’ exhibit at State Library, March 4-11

An exhibit traveling North America that chronicles Poland’s struggle for independence will be open for viewing at the N.H. State Library in Concord on weekdays, March 4-11, from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

Brought to New Hampshire through cooperation between the Institute of National Remembrance in Warsaw and the Polish American Congress of New Hampshire, "From War to Victory, 1939-1989" focuses on the fifty years in the 20th century when Poland was occupied by Nazi Germany and then experienced the forced imposition of communism by the Soviets.

The exhibit incorporates photographs and bi-lingual text to document the Polish people’s resistance during those decades, first by its soldiers during World War II and then by the post-War underground “Home Army” during the communist era.

There is no charge to visit the exhibit.

"From War to Victory, 1939-1989" has been viewed, among other places,in Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit, New York City,Ottawa, Toronto and the Wilson Center Washington, D.C. Following its appearance inNew Hampshire, it willmake its final North American appearance at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
