This exhibition at the Nowa Huta Museum tells the story of the Lenin Steelworks, which was one of the largest industrial plants in the People’s Republic of Poland and the flagship investment of the 6-year plan. Over the decades the importance of the factory for the district has changed significantly. During the communist era, Nowa Huta was actually a monoculture district built around the factory, where the roles of a worker and resident were often inseparable. The exhibition is an attempt to look at the plant as a socialist workplace, with its philosophy and its translation into practice. It addresses the social functions of the workplace during the communist era, such as running company kindergartens, holiday centres, and community centres.
