Last Friday marked the opening of the exhibition "Les Polonais du Luxembourg" ("Luxembourg's Poles") in Place de Strasbourg in Luxembourg-Ville, in the presence of Luxembourg City alderman Maurice Bauer and the Polish Ambassador to Luxembourg, Piotr Wojtczak.

Through a hundred portraits by photographer Gabriela Kaziuk and dozens of biographies to be discovered on the website, this exhibition highlights the lives of Polish people living in the Grand Duchy, particularly on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Polish-Luxembourg diplomatic relations (1921-2021).

With around 4,900 Polish nationals living in Luxembourg, the Poles form an important community in the multicultural landscape of the Grand Duchy and are an integral part of Luxembourg's history: that of the pre-war period and even that of the 19th century with the country's economic development.

This open-air exhibition, produced in collaboration with the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Luxembourg and the non-profit organisation, will be on display until 5 November 2021.

Entry is free of charge.
