PGSA: Visit the Warsaw Uprising Museum and Its Research Resources
|Event:||PGSA Quarterly Meeting|
|When:||November 21, 2021, Sunday - 2:00-4:00 pm Central Time|
|Topic:||The Warsaw Uprising Museum was opened on the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of fighting in Warsaw which lasted 63 days from 1 August to 2 October 1944. The Museum is a tribute to the resistance effort of the Home Army and the residents of Warsaw who fought and died for an independent Poland and to free its capital. Though Polish historians to this day debate the wisdom and logic of the Uprising against the Nazi regime at that moment, the event is pivotal in modern Polish history. It represents the deep will of the Polish people not only to survive, but to take action to liberate their nation.
The presentation will include a discussion of the archives, with insights on how to work with the museum and its website to search for relatives possibly involved in, affected by, or living in Warsaw during the uprising
