War and Remembrance. Periodical of the Museum of the Second World War in Gdańsk

The first issue of the periodical came out in 2019, that is on the 80th Anniversary of the outbreak of World War II. The main aim of the periodical was and still is the creation of a certain platform for scholars that enables them to publish research results concerning the genesis, course and consequences of World War II. Another motivation behind its establishment was the desire to create space of discourse about the memory of World War II. The pages of War and Rembrance as a periodical issued by a museum institution were also given to museologists and other persons interested in the issues of gathering and preserving relics, collections and documentary evidence concerning the history of the last global conflict.
