An exhibition organised by the Joseph Pilsudski Institute in London in collaboration with the Kresy-Siberia Foundation will be open for public viewing at the Gallery in POSK, Hammersmith, London on 6-19 August 9.00 am 9.00 pm. (See http://www.pilsudski.org.uk/A_002_wystawa_Wilno_miasto_bez-imienia.html)
The exhibition will be officially opened at 4.00 pm on Saturday 6 August and all K-S members are invited to attend. K-S (UK) Directors Mirka Wojnar (who helped organise the exhibition), Jurek Neisser and me Eva Szegidewicz will be there from 1.00 pm please come and join us for a chat and something to eat and drink before the opening event!
Kresy-Siberia will be featuring a "repeating loop" showing of our 17-minute version of A Forgotten Odyssey, Jagna Wright and Aneta Naszynska's movie, abridged specially for our Virtual Museum.
The exhibition itself portrays the vibrancy of life in Vilnius through pre-war photographs and the exhibits show the unique cultural and national diversity found within the region, the rare architecture, as well as the beautiful landscapes which not only set the scene for the everyday lives of the inhabitants of the area but also for the important historical developments which took place in pre-war Poland.
The Wilejka Valley, Kaziukowy Market and the streets of Antokol, captured through a camera lens over 100 years ago, provide exceptional images of places and times which have long disappeared.
Hope you can attend and give us your support.
Director, Kresy-Siberia (UK)
