Part of the ongoing celebrations of the 70th anniversary of Nowa Huta, this exhibition tells the story of the metallurgical plant once known as the Lenin Steelworks. The construction of the steelworks - one of the largest industrial plants in Europe was the reason for the establishment of Nowa Huta, first as a separate city, later as a district of Kraków. During the communist era, Nowa Huta was actually a monocultural city built around a workplace, in which the roles of worker and resident were often inseparable. The exhibition examines the steelworks as a socialist workplace, alongside its philosophy and its projection of reality, as remembered by its former employees. It touches upon the social functions of the workplace at the time of the Polish People’s Republic, including kindergartens, common rooms, holiday resorts, and community centres which operated in close relationship with such workplaces.
