The Occupied Wawel Castle: New Architecture and Function

As early as October 1939, Germans renamed Wawel Castle to Krakauer Burg. The former seat of Polish kings became the residence of Governor-General Hans Frank and the place where his numerous administration worked and lived. What was the purpose of each of the Wawel buildings? How were existing facilities upgraded to accommodate new functions? What important events shaped the lives of the castle's new residents and who played a significant role in protecting the historic fabric of the Wawel Hill?

Café ADRIA. About the sea and Central Europe

The Adriatic Sea is more than a sea that binds coasts and peoples together. It is also a space where political influences clashed, where history was formed, and the imperial ambitions of various Central European countries were manifested. The International Cultural Centre would like to invite you to a cruise on the Adriatic Sea and a journey from its shores into the interior. Our map for this journey comes with the book “Adriatic” by Egidio Ivetic, and the guides will be Robert Makłowicz and Łukasz Galusek.

City – Camp – City. KL Plaszow Memorial Site

The phrase "town – camp – town", when referring to the KL Plaszow Memorial Site, can be understood in many different ways. The first natural association is the perception of Plaszow Concentration Camp itself as a spatial structure of a camp-city. Around mid-1944, the camp housed 20,000 prisoners at a time, and there were more than 200 buildings of various types on an area of 31 square miles. Like the city, the camp was divided into "districts" – the area for prisoners with living quarters, kitchens, food storage, a hospital, and a roll-call square; the industrial area with workshops and production barracks; and the staff area with officers' houses, commandant's quarters, and barracks.
