Unforgettable. Women During the Uprisings and Plebiscite in Upper Silesia
May 3 - Jan 5 2020
ul. Tadeusza Dobrowolskiego 1
Although Silesian insurgents were mainly men, there was a small percentage of women, most likely about 2–3 percent. They fought alongside men, dug trenches, dressed wounds, looked after the wounded soldiers, performed various office tasks, they were couriers, operated telephones and telegraphs, washed, cooked, cleaned, sewn armbands, and worked as translators. Most importantly, they were wives, mothers, and sisters who were providing for families when men were at work, fighting a war, in exile, in prisons and concentration camps. The exhibition pays homage to those Silesian insurgent women. An “Insurgents' hideout” escape room will be a part of the exhibition.
