The â€œPeople of the Polish Second Corpsâ€� exhibition is now online, and will be formally introduced by Aneta Hoffmann at a special event in Warsaw at noon tomorrow. The exhibition has been made possible from funds provided by the Museum of Polish History (Warsaw) under their Patriotyzm Jutra (Patriotism for tomorrow) program.
My sincere thanks go to Aneta Hoffmann, Anna Pacewicz, Elzunia Olsson, Claire Sjolander, Frank Pleszak, all the translators, and all the veterans who are featured in the story, for their assistance (a full list of those who assisted is available in the â€œAbout this Exhibitionâ€� tab at the top of the exhibit page).
The exhibition is available in both English and Polish versions.
To see the exhibition:
Â· Click on the SPECIAL EXHIBITIONS box in the area at the top of the page - on this page, the first exhibition shown is the â€œPeople of the Polish 2nd Corpsâ€�
Â· Click on GO TO THE EXHIBITION - a new page will open, looking like the cover of a book
Â· Click on the â€œ OPEN â€œ tab, you will enter the exhibition ....
Now you can click on any of the names, and follow their story.
You can go through the exhibit by clicking the Next Page, Next Chapter and Next Person tabs that appear along the side of the book.
You can also click on the ALL PERSONS tab at any time, to get back to the initial page and select another story at will.
As you view each story, you can click on each photo to enlarge it, and you can click on the players to watch and listen to the video/audio clips.
Donâ€™t forget to click on â€œAbout this exhibitionâ€� in the header, to read about those who helped create the exhibition.

I hope you enjoy these veteran stories !
