EMIGRATION IN SOURCES

The stories of emigrants left thousands of silent witnesses in the form of documents created during travel and life abroad. The preserved promotional materials of shipowners, ship tickets, passenger manifests, passports, or letters to families constitute extremely valuable sources of information. Learning about them may be an excellent inspiration for many research projects and works. Guided tours will allow a look at this type of objects more precisely and refer them to a broader context of the history of emigration presented at the exhibition.

HISTORY OF EMIGRATION AND SOCIAL HISTORY

The history of emigration is inseparably linked to the history of social and technological transformations, but also to political decisions and armed conflicts.
