A museum tracing the fate of Poles deported to Russia’s far eastern Siberia region between the 17th century and the early 1940s is under construction in the eastern Polish city of Białystok.

The museum, which is scheduled to open at the end of next year, will focus on the life and suffering of Poles held in Russian and then Soviet labor camps in Siberia, in a reminder of the troubled relations between the two neighboring countries over the centuries.

Brussels-based studio Tempora, a member of the Belgian Business Chamber in Poland, will design the permanent exhibition of the museum. The Belgian company won a tender from Białystok City Hall and the city’s Museum of the Polish Army in September.

The museum is being built with the help of EU funds.
