The project covers the activity of the exiled Polish authorities and the wider Polish émigré community in Britain both during the Second World War and in the post-war period up until the political breakthrough of 1989-1991. The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness of the history and legacy of the Government-in-Exile and of the Polish exiles in Britain, among Poles in Poland and in the United Kingdom.
Last year the Polish Embassy in London produced a short documentary series on the history of the Polish Government-in-Exile, featuring newly recorded interviews as well as an extensive archive material. This year The Embassy will film a number of new interviews and launch an internet portal that will make easily accessible all the information and archives which we have gathered so far.
The 2014 documentary series “Republic in Exile / Rzeczpospolita Londyńska” was created by Agnieszka Chmura, Light Leeks, and Konrad Jagodziński, Senior Public Relations Specialist at the Embassy
