Lesson plan
1.The students in groups translate the texts, the teacher corrects the information.
The temporary exhibition about Poles in London was on a display at the Library of Warsaw University until 30 November 2014. It is the first exhibition that gets us closer to the complex history of Polish emigration and the government-in-exile in London from 1940 to 1990, and is prepared by the Polish History Museum. The exhibition is under the patronage of the president of Poland, Bronisław Komorowski, and is presented in Polish and English.   
Great Britain became the center of life and activity for the largest Polish political émigré society during and after the Second World War. In large part, these people were servicemen of the Polish Armed Forces in the West and employees of various government agencies, along with their families. The Polish government-in-exile functioned in London for over five decades, although from mid 1945 it was not officially recognized in Great Britain and in most other nations. Upon this social fabric, subsequent waves of emigration built a broader émigré society, including key influxes after March 1968 and through the Solidarity era. As a result, London has become an important focal point of Polish history and memory, as well as a vivid center of contemporary Polish life.
London, „Capital of Poland" is made up of spaces and places where you can learn about daily life and entertainment of émigré Poles. Visitors can see the office of the president of the government-in-exile, as well as original furniture from the famous editorial office of the periodical Wiadamości, run by Mieczysław Grydzewski. The studio-gallery of the painter Marek Żuławski is another example, and visitors may operate the 19th-century printing press of Stanisław Gliwa and take a lesson about artistic printing.
At the exhibition, visitors can witness an anti-Soviet political demonstration from 1956, and those interested in social life can see General Anders playing cards and Miss Polonia 1955, and watch a show by Loda Halama, the woman with the longest legs of Polish London. The exhibition also discusses the difficult beginnings of the emigration in the 1940s and 1950s, and how Londoners saw Poland in the 1960s and 1970s and after the imposition of martial law.
Events that accompany the exhibition include a conference on 29 October dedicated to Albin Tybulewicz, a wartime courier to London, and a debate about the political heritage of the late 20th-century emigration. These and other events will be held in the University Library (more news here).
