I’m From Here. Poland of Many Nations

I’m From Here. Poland of Many Nations

Project “I’m from here. Poland of many nations (Jestem stąd. Polska wielu narodów) is an educational exhibition about the ethnic and national minorities in Poland.

www.jestemstad.pl

The exhibition is divided into two parts: individual and descriptive. The first part is showing 15 portraits photos of the ethnic and national minorities representatives along with information focused on the individual perspective of the people from those communities. The second part is more descriptive – using chosen photos and texts it presents the history and culture of each minority.

The exhibition is educational, and it’s presented in schools, museums, and cultural institution nationwide. All those interested in hosting the exhibition in their institution are encouraged to contact us.

The website www.jestemstad.pl was created as part of Polish-Dutch project named “Holocaust Education in European Perspective” (2011–2013). It is methodical support of our exhibition, which main topics are history, culture and present life of minorities in Poland. Complete graphic and textual materials can be found on the site. For those interested, there are also teaching materials helpful for teaching about the content of the exhibition.

The project implemented in 2010.
