A Phoenix from the Ashes: The Destruction and Reconstruction of Warsaw 1939-1955
The exhibition revisits one of the most critical chapters in the history of Poland, the destruction of the capital city of Warsaw by German troops and the inspiring reconstruction of the city after World War II. World War II and the Warsaw Uprising of 1944 in particular, left the city with almost nothing to define its identity. Warsaw, the centre of cultural, political and social life, almost ceased to exist. But like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Warsaw was rebuilt and gradually brought back to life. This unique and pioneering nature of the reconstruction of the city was given its due recognition when Warsaw’s Old Town was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1980.
