This is an audiovisual exhibition about Polish combatants, who came to the UK after WWII. It consists of portraits and recordings of 5 people, who shared their story about surviving war, and their journey to find a new home in England. What started as a simple university project, evolved into something much bigger and meaningful, than I imagined. It is not only a collection of personal memoirs, but also a record of history, told by eyewitnesses for the next generations to learn. Each story is different, but they all share one thing: all those people have come a long way to find something, which is often taken for granted – freedom and a safe home.
