GDANSK | Museum of World War II | U/C

Gdansk, Poland. Museum of World War II

Under construction. Expected time of completion 2015.

WHY GDANSK?

Quote:
It needs to be stressed that Gdańsk was chosen as the home of the Museum of the Second World War intentionally. It was here, on 1 September 1939, that salvos from the battleship Schleswig-Holstein launched the conflict that would bring suffering and death to millions. Even before the outbreak of the war, the German government of the Free City of Gdańsk had forced its citizens of Jewish nationality to sell their property and to emigrate. Once the war had begun, the German occupation authorities’ deliberate policy of expulsions targeted inhabitants of neighbouring Gdynia as its first victims. In the years that followed, millions of innocent people of various nationalities would share their fate, as they were driven out of their native regions. There was no precedent in the history of Europe since the migrations of the Middle Ages for the population shifts brought about by the Third Reich’s policies.

Quote:
The building will accomodate the needs of the exhibition, which is being prepared. According to our working premises, the exhibition space will measure about 4,000 sq. m., while the space available for temporary exhibitions will cover about 1,000 sq. m. The United States Holocaust Museum in Washington and the Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw are of comparable size.

The new home of the Museum of the Second World War will serve not only as a museum but also as a living space for education, culture and learning. Its many functions will include exhibitions, archival documentation and scholarly research, and Polish and international meetings. Keeping in mind the different historical memories of our neighbouring nations, we would like to create a place which, instead of erasing our differences, will bring our perspectives closer together and become an arena for creating joint projects for mutual understanding and reconciliation.

The shape actually fits in nicely with both the red brick Gothic architecture of the historical quarter(s) and the shipyards. I actually do not think it looks like debris, but a reinterpretation of a traditional shape in a modern way.

Have you looked at what this museum is about? Seems to be just about right for such a museum. Or would you prefer a cute building looking like a fairy tale caslte or a sleek apple building? Both would be utterly inadequate.

Interesting...but,is there a real need in 2016 for a Museum of World War II?...sounds more like another memorial!
I went to Westerplatte;it was very interesting but lovely Gdansk has such a charm and so much more to offer!
Beside amber,if you ask the average Joe about Gdansk it's gonna be:World War II and Walesa;that's it!
...By de way,i'm craving some amazing Pierogi with a cool Okocim!

In a country which suffered terribly during WW2 and which has much awful monuments and structures as reminders, the new museum is certainly something of a brute with a prominent skyline presence in a city which Poland otherwise seems to have gone to great efforts to restore its prewar appearance. There is a similar concrete bunker style war museum to this in Ottawa built a few years ago, though not as tall and prominent. It seems though that the museum is a very strong concrete message of reminder to Germany that this is where WW2 started and that Gdansk is now Polish. It will be interesting to see how the interior looks, how the war is interpreted, as well as the immediate post war period which is also important.
