The AHA has sent a letter to Poland’s Minister of Culture expressing concern about the proposal to disrupt the planned Museum of the Second World War and to merge it with a new museum focusing on Poland’s military struggle in 1939. The Museum of the Second World War, if built as planned, will be the only major museum to showcase the history of the war through an international lens. The letter praises Poland’s critical approach in coming to terms with its difficult past, and urges the country to continue its leadership by moving forward with the Museum of the Second World War as planned.
