Moving Polish borders in 1945 brought political, economical and, most of all, social consequences. Restoring destroyed buildings and interpersonal bonds, familiarizing with stranger space and culture are parts of the process of the postwar inhabitants' "growing into" the "new" Poland. This will be told of by an outdoor exhibition at Solidarności Sq. from January 12th to February 25th 2018. Over 300 archive photographs, videos and records of witnesses' accounts have been collected. They present chosen aspects of several first postwar years of life in Western and Northern Lands.  

The exhibition "Growing into. Western and Northern Lands. The Beginning" came to existence within cooperation of institutions of The Network of Western and Northern Lands - Sieć Ziem Zachodnich i Północnych (Ośrodek „Pamięć i Przyszłość” in Wrocław, Instytut Śląski in Opole, Instytut Zachodni in Poznań, Ośrodek Badań Naukowych in Olsztyn and The National Museum in Szczecin - The Dialogue Centre Upheavals). The authors of the exhibition concept are Dr. Katarzyna Bock-Matuszyk and Dr. Wojciech Kucharski from Ośrodek "Pamięć i Przyszłość”, and the author team includes, among others, experts from all institutions of The Network of Western and Northern Lands and University of Wrocław; the scenography design has been created by JAZ+ Architekci from Warsaw. The exhibition is held under the Honorary Patronage of The President of Republic of Poland Andrzej Duda.
