Our Changing Children

The changing appearance, toys, activities and social roles of Polish children over the last 200 years are documented in an photographic exhibition online entitled Być dzieckiem… (Being a Child).

The exhibition includes 98 images from the collection of the State Archive in Warsaw that portray children of different ages, in different times and situations. It contains three parts, each with over 30 photographs taken in a different era.

The first focuses on children from the late 19th century, both toddlers and teenagers. Part two depicts children from cities and villages in the first decades of the 20th century. The third part contains images of children taken during World War II.

In the 19th century, children were completely dependent on their families; in the early 20th century they were becoming more independent; and during the war they would sometimes take up adult roles.

Many of the photos have never been displayed before. Most were taken by photographers from Warsaw.

The exhibition can be viewed at www.warszawa.ap.gov.pl/bycdzieckiem.html
