"Hubert Chudzio, Anna Hejczyk, The Collection of the Centre for Documentation of Deportations,
Exiles and Displacements. The institution named the Centre for Documentation of Deportations,
Exiles and Displacements was established in 2010 as a result of cooperation of the Pedagogical
University (PU) with the Małopolskie Voivodship Offi ce (MVO). The project resulted from several
years’ work of history students of the Pedagogical University being the members of the Scientifi c Association
of PU History Students who carried out the project: “Western Territories as an Example of
the Migration of Polish, German and Ukrainian People during and after the Second World War” during
three summer camps in the years 2004 to 2006. As part of the undertaking, young students of history,
supervised by experienced staff of the Institute of History of the PU and using a special survey, recorded
stories of people displaced after World War II from the former Eastern Borderlands of the Second
Polish Republic to the so-called Recovered Territories.
The Centre for Documentation of Deportations, Exiles and Displacements is “a public scientifi c,
research and educational institution operating as part of the Pedagogical University of Cracow”. The
aim of the Centre is “to save the stories of residents of the Republic of Poland in its contemporary and
former boundaries who were subject to forced migrations from the time of the Bar Confederation until
Communist repressions and to popularise the knowledge among school children, students and local
societies”. The Centre consists of:
1. A research unit dealing with documenting forced migration of Polish citizens,
2. Museum of Deportations, Exiles and Displacements,
3. Library and Archive of Deportations, Exiles and Displacements.
However, research missions are only a part of the Centre’s activity. A great signifi cance is also
attributed to everyday work which consists in documenting stories of residents living in Cracow and
its vicinity who experienced forced migrations as well as in undertaking educational activities."
