Details of the exhibition:

On the occasion of the 100. anniversary of the foundation of the independent Poland the Laczkó Dezső Museum Veszprém opens a new temporary exhibition.

In the two floors of the gallery two themes can be visited, which present the struggles and battles for independence of the Polish history. On the first floor the audience may visit “The white eagle soars again” exhibition, and on the second floor the path of life of Józef Pilsudski can be visited.

The Polish-Lithuanian Union (“the Republic of Two Nations) was the biggest state of Central and Eastern Europe in the XVIII. century. The enormous country was threatened by the oligarchic battles of nobles and the position of power of the Russian Empire and the Prussian Kingship. The major powers of Europe divided the country for three times (1772, 1793, 1795). After the last diplomatic act Poland disappeared from the map.

There were a lot of struggles and battles for the independence of the country during the monarch of foreign states (France, Russia).

The exhibition reflects to these events and circumstances, which resulted in the foundation of the independent Poland.

The most exclusive piece of the exhibition is the relic of Józef Bem, which is coming from Tarnów (Muzeum Okregowe w Tarnowie). Both the Hungarian and the Poland history respect Józef Bem, whose skull fragments and hair will be exhibited, as well, in the central part of the gallery.

The other significant piece of the exhibition is the box, which illustrates the death of Józef Poniatowski. He was the defence minister of the Duchy of Warsaw, which was founded by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1807. This object is coming from the collection of Hermann Ottó Museum Miskolc to the Laczkó Dezső Museum.

Another exclusive piece is the flag finial of the Polish legion, which was formed during the revolution of 1848-1849. The flag finial presents the battle locations where Polish voluntary soldiers fought. The knight’s cross of Reviczky Károly, ambassador of Warsaw can be visited, as well, which he gained in Malta.

Coins, medallions from the monarch of Sanislaw II Augustus Poniatowski, hat medals and other soldier accessories of the Polish legion can be visited in the exhibition.

Furthermore, sabres will be exhibited from the 18-19. centuries, which had significant role during the struggles for the independent Poland.

The design of the exhibition was made by Csiszér Tamás, internationally recognized designer from Veszprém and the owner of Csiszér Design.

The practical layout of the plans and the building of the exhibition were accomplished by the co-workers of the OOK-Press.

The Laczkó Dezső Museum applies for the “Exhibition of the Year 2018” with this exhibition.

The exhibition can be visited until 05.08.2018, except for Monday from 10:00-18:00.
