100th Anniversary of Defense of Lviv. In Memory of Lviw Eagles
The National Museum in Szczecin - The Dialogue Centre Upheavals | Plac Solidarności 1, 70-515 Szczecin, Polska

The exhibition remcalls one of the most important pages of Polish history related to the regaining of independence one hundred years ago – the defense of Lviv. On November 1st, 1918, Austro-Hungarian soldiers of Ukrainian origin occupied the majority of public buildings in Lviv. They proclaimed the creation of the Western Ukrainian People's Republic. The Poles who lived in Lviv mostly opposed this. They were Polish conspiracy organizations, inhabitants of Lviv, including youth, later called the Lviv Eagles. The first stage of the 1918-1919 conflict ended on the night of November 22nd-23rd, 1918 – the troops of the Galician Army retreated from Lwów, but began to siege the city. It ended with the offensive of the Polish Army on May 22nd, 1919.

The exhibition will show memorabilia brought to West Pomerania after World War II by Poles who settled here after the occupation of the south-eastern borderlands of the Second Polish Republic by the Soviet Union.

Throughout the duration of the exhibition, all weekdays (Tuesday - Fridays) from 10.00 A.M. to 1.00 P.M., witnesses to history, members and sympathizers of The Society of Friends of Lviv and the South-Eastern Borderlands, will be on-duty at the exhibition.
