heading for the desired goal, which was an independent Poland, a safe Europe and a free world.

local part, emphasizing the close ties connecting Poles with a specific place where the exhibition is presented.

The Israeli edition of the exhibition focuses on Menachem Begin – one of the soldiers of General Władysław Anders’ Army. It is a story about fear and courage, love for loved ones and longing for

the Homeland, a story about heroism, sacrifice and the price of freedom. Above all, however, it is a story about hope.
