Poland April 2017~part 3 ~ Museum Ulma

Part 1 HERE.   Part 2 HERE

On the Saturday of our weekend with Eddy & Gosia, we all went out for the day.  Firstly we visited the Museum Ulma at Markowa.

The museum is quite small but beautifully presented.  On the wall outside are the names of all the Poles who saved Jews

Josef & Wiktoria

There are many displays inside, lots of old photographs, household items and is based on a recreation of the Ulma’s family house.  I didn’t take a lot of pictures as there was a lot of reflective glass to contend with, also a herd of visitors in a coach descended on the place so it was getting very busy.

Josephs camera I think,

I think this is the Hebrew Bible  or Tanakh

Phil watching and listening to one of the many videos of people who were there at the time telling what happened, it was cool they had subtitles in English.

After that we went off to   Łańcut Castle, so stay tooned for that!

In doing a bit of research regarding the Ulma museum, I came across a really well thought out and well written blog regarding the history of this and the relevant politics, so for further reading if you are interested I am leaving a link to it, HERE .
