The materials in the exhibition are used by the following communities – Bodos (Assam), Khasi (Meghalaya), Mao Naga (Manipur), Meitei (Manipur), Rongmei Naga (Manipur) and Sumi (Nagaland)

A Phoenix from the Ashes: The Destruction and Reconstruction of Warsaw 1939-1955

Start Date:  20 Sep 2017  At:  11:00  .ART GALLERY (IIC Annexe) 
Description :
A Phoenix from the Ashes: The Destruction and Reconstruction of Warsaw 1939-1955
The exhibition revisits one of the most critical chapters in the history of Poland, the destruction of the capital city of Warsaw by German troops and the inspiring reconstruction of the city after World War II. World War II and the Warsaw Uprising of 1944 in particular, left the city with almost nothing to define its identity. Warsaw, the centre of cultural, political and social life, almost ceased to exist. But like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Warsaw was rebuilt and gradually brought back to life. This unique and pioneering nature of the reconstruction of the city was given its due recognition when Warsaw’s Old Town was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1980.
Inauguration by Dr. Pawe? Ukielski, Deputy Director of the Warsaw Rising Museum on Tuesday, 19th September 2017 at 18:00
Following the inauguration there will be a lecture and film screening in the Lecture Room II adjoining the Art Gallery at 18:30
