Forgeries and resistance in WW II
October 25, 2012
The Warsaw Uprising Museum is staging a multimedia exhibition showing how the Polish underground movement went about producing forged documents as part of the struggle against Poland’s German occupiers during World War II.
The exhibition features items such as fake identity documents, counterfeit banknotes, stamps, a document-forging set and a walking cane with a hiding place for secret documents.
Visitors also have an opportunity to listen to interviews with people who were involved in producing forged documents. The exhibition at the museum, at 79 Grzybowska St., runs until Dec. 31.
