DR. ZUZANNA BOGUMIŁ (Warszawa)
Kirchenmuseen: die Museen des Priesters Jerzy Popiełuszko entlang des historischen Wanderweges Bydgoszcz-Górsk-Włocławek

mit einem Kommentar von Prof. Tadeusz Bartoś (Pułtusk).

Der Vortrag findet am Donnerstag, den 10. Oktober 2019 um 19.00 Uhr in der Bibliothek des Zentrums für Historische Forschung Berlin statt.

The beginning of the XXI century, marked by the foundation of the Warsaw Uprising Museum in 2004, brought a museum turn in the Polish memory landscape. This turn may be also observed in the commemoration practices of the Roman Catholic Church in Poland, which has been developing more and more museums and multimedia exhibitions. This focus on museums means that the Church, too, is constructing modern multimedia spaces similar to those found in other contemporary historical museums. These Church-sponsored spaces follow the same principles, employ the same means and techniques, and are often conceptualized by the same professional design companies. During my presentation I will refer to the Blessed Jerzy Popiełuszko Museums located on the Martyrdom Trial of Blessed. Father Jerzy Popiełuszko, who was a Polish Roman Catholic priest associated with the Solidarity movement, who became a symbol of the Polish struggle for liberty during the communist period. In 2010 he was beatified and in 2014 a Martyrdom Trail linking Bydgoszcz-Górsk-and Włocławek was established. A wider goal of my presentation is to show that the main goal of the church museums is to transmit values rather than preserve the past.
