The exhibition has been arranged to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War. Around six million Polish citizens perished during the war – about a fifth of the country’s population.
A statement from the association said: “The history of World War Two has been dominated by narratives of suffering, victimisation, displacement and death, as much in Poland as elsewhere.
“But frequently forgotten are the stories of hope and survival of thousands of Poles, who escaped the terror of war and found safe haven in distant and often exotic lands such as France, the United Kingdom, India, Africa or even Mexico.”
