Paul Strzelecki: a forgotten Polish Hero of the Great Irish Famine September 22, 2019

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Was in the Central Library yesterday morning and caught this. Just on the exhibition space in the Central, they do their best but they really need – in any new building, an area dedicated solely to exhibitions. As to the exhibition it’s an interesting and quite in depth, albeit small, exhibition on the life of Paul Strzelecki – a fascinating figure featured in History Ireland recently.

Central Library, 4-30 September

Paul Strzelecki’s struggle to save thousands: a forgotten Polish Hero of the Great Irish Famine. This exhibition tells the story of Count Paul ( Pawel) Strzelecki, a world renowned Polish explorer and scientist, who volunteered to work in Ireland to combat famine from 1847-1849. Count Strzelecki deserves wide recognition for his heroism, deep empathy and the impact he made during the catastrophic famine period.

This exhibition tells the story of his remarkable life and achievements. Presented by the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Dublin.

Viewing times as per library opening hours.

Central Library T. 01 873 4333 E. centrallibrary@dublincity.ie
