5 December in Gdynia will see the opening of a Polish-American exhibition devoted to the history of Hamtramck and its residents. Americans of Polish descent, Polish immigrants and even a couple of “Poles by choice “, 30 people in all, told their life stories in a unique project run by the Emigration Museum in Gdynia. The artist photographer Tomek Zerek and researcher Dr Anna Muller spent a few weeks in a place which captivated them both.
