The list of selected projects
Rubble extracted from the building site of the Museum was the starting point for the set design illustrating the destruction of Poland during WW2. The destruction did not merely involve material damage. By the end of the war, most of Polish Jews had lost their lives. About 50 thousand survived in hiding, some in concentration camps, and the rest - in the Soviet Union. The burning question for those who found themselves in post-war Poland was whether to stay, or to leave. Those who stayed, temporarily or not, took to reconstruction of personal and social life.
