On June 22nd, 2023, aboard the Nova Star ferry, an agreement of partnership was signed between the Museum of the Second World War in Gdańsk and Polska Żegluga Bałtycka SA (Polferries). This collaboration marks another initiative to popularize historical knowledge about the world's largest armed conflict.

 

A special focus will be placed on the narrative of the Westerplatte peninsula - the site where World War II began. This area also connects both parties forming the agreement - Polferries ships of Polska Żegluga Bałtycka dock at the local ferry terminal, while the Museum manages the nearby area where a branch of the institution is being established.

 

 

Addressing the attendees, Dr. hab. Grzegorz Berendt, the Director of the Museum of the Second World War in Gdańsk, stated:

As a cultural institution, we are committed to operating in various dimensions on the Westerplatte grounds. I am extremely pleased that we can work together to disseminate information about the history of our country, our social and national experience. This information can reach thousands of our neighbors from the Baltic Sea basin. (...) Today, we observe how Westerplatte is changing. We are building a modern museum here with the support of business communities. With your help, we will be able to extend the story of Polish history to Scandinavia.
