How did the world's press describe the outbreak of World War II? What were the newspaper headlines after the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, after Germany's occupation of Poland, after the Red Army invaded the country and after the fall of Warsaw?

You can find out at an exhibition called War on the Front Page-September 1939. It is displayed on the fence of Łazienki Park on Ujazdowskie Avenue and runs until Sept. 30.

The exhibition shows reprints of the front pages of Polish and foreign newspapers of August and September 1939. Visitors have an opportunity to see how the Polish press informed the public about the war and what was written on the topic by foreign newspapers, including Pravda, Chicago Tribune, Corriere della Sera, Le Figaro, Volkische Beobachter, and Der Sturmer. The exhibition also features German titles and newspapers serving Poland's ethnic minorities-the Ukrainian Dilo and Jewish Unzer Express and Der Moment. The reprints are accompanied by brief commentaries in Polish and English.
