The British politician and diplomat Edgar Vincent D’Abernon, author of a list of decisive battles of the world, wrote about the 1920 Battle of Warsaw: “On the essential point, there can be little room for doubt; had the Soviet forces overcome Polish resistance… Bolshevism would have spread throughout Central Europe and might well have penetrated the whole continent.” Launched in July, the exhibition at the Szołayski House, branch of the National Museum in Krakow, presents propaganda posters and sketches from the front revealing the vast mobilisation of the reborn Polish society in their struggle against the “Bolshevik onslaught” (to 29 November). The exhibition features documents, medals, uniforms and period weapons. (Dorota Dziunikowska, “Karnet” monthly)
