All of Us - Anders' people

My Wszyscy - Od Andersa

An online bilingual exhibitionfor the next generations of "people from Anders" - soldiers of the 2nd Polish Army Corps. Based on the experiences of those who remained in the British Isles, it covers initial settling, economic and professional difficulties, longing for homeland, a sense of being in a foreign culture, creating our own emigration environment - "Poland outside Poland", then finding our own place within British society and with the departure of older generations, the disappearance of a sense of Polish identity often reduced to bigos and carols.
