Roots of Memory

We invite you to take part in an initiative that will make the memories of the Warsaw Insurgents truly come alive.

The Museum and its activity along with the commemorations of the anniversary of the Warsaw Rising have always primarily been about meeting with the Insurgents, the participants and witnesses of history. Every conversation, every ceremony, every event allowed us to be in the presence of their bravery, wisdom, kindness, strength and serenity. We were always sure that we could count on their support and, above all, on their presence. However, time flows relentlessly.

We need to face what is inevitable. The insurgents are fading before our eyes, and the mission of the entire team of the Warsaw Rising Museum is to prevent the memory of their lives, achievements and dreams from fading as well. It is you, their descendants, who are the bearers of treasure that is of memories. You are the ones who remember your mothers, your fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers, with their customs, rituals, rules, wisdom and truth they carried inside them. You know best what they were afraid of, what they wanted, what they dreamed of and why they fought.

That is why we invite you to join the "Roots of Memory" campaign. It is very important for us to hear your stories and memories about how the dream of living in a free country carried through to you and your families.
