March ’68
Thematic edition of The Virtual Shtetl

© POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews

This on-line story of March ’68 does not start with a list of dates and events. It opens with the stories of people for whom the March events constituted a personal watershed moment. The digital compendium of knowledge created by POLIN Museum makes use of a great number of resources, including oral history narratives recorded on video and a wide array of archival photographs. We have also assembled a glossary of important terms, a timeline of key events, and a list of recommended readings. To top it all off, the website features a gallery of extraordinary keepsakes – items which gained special significance 50 years ago, having left Poland in the luggage of travellers with a one-way ticket.
