The Krzyżowa Foundation has its seat on the premises of the former residence of Helmuth James von Moltke’s family. In Nazi times, a resistance group ‘The Kreisau Circle’ operated here. In opposition to the dictatorship, risking their own lives, the members of the group planned a democratic and peaceful Germany that would be integrated with the rest of Europe. The Krzyżowa Foundation is based upon this tradition and the ideas of the resistance movement; its non-conformism and moral courage. We relate to the experience of opposition against dictatorships in Central and Eastern Europe. The forerunners of the Foundation, West and East Germans, Poles, Americans and the Dutch, wanted to make this place centre of European understanding. When the Berlin Wall fell, a Polish-German Mass of Reconciliation was celebrated in Krzyżowa. The governments of Poland and Germany welcomed the initiative to create a meeting place here. Now the Foundation continues the work which was started here by the Kreisau Circle: bringing together people of varying backgrounds and political ideas to speak with one another and plan for a greater future.

The "Kresy-Siberia" Foundation was set up through a Founding Act by Sybirak descendant Stefan Wisniowski on 25.11.2008. Its registration in the National Court Register took place on 23.03.2009. Registered in Warsaw, the Foundation operates on a global basis in both English and Polish languages. The Foundation is dedicated to the research, remembrance and recognition of Poland's citizens fighting for freedom and survival in occupied eastern Poland and in forced exile during World War II. It pursues its mission in three major ways: 1. Conducting the "Kresy-Siberia" discussion group on the internet, located at www.facebook.com/groups/KresySiberiaGroup. The Kresy-Siberia group has over 1,300 members - Poles scattered all over the world, who - themselves or their ancestors - came from the former Eastern Borderlands of Poland and who survived deportations and prisons under Soviet occupation during the Second World War. Members of the "Kresy-Siberia" group live mainly in the United Kingdom, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand as well as in Poland. The members of the Group make a significant contribution in the discovery and popularisation of their family and national history. 2. Managing the Kresy-Siberia Virtual Museum on the internet at www.kresy-siberia.org. The Kresy-Siberia Group contributed heavily to create this museum through, among others, an extensive gallery of unique photographs originating mainly from Sybiraks living since World War II in the West, and a large collection of unique documents related to members of the group or their families living in the Eastern Borderlands and their subsequent fate. The Museum presents the repressions experienced by the citizens of the Second Republic of Poland under the Soviet and German invaders, during ethnic cleansing perpetrated by Ukrainian Nationalists, and in exile as captives, combatants or civilian refugees. As well as a series of historical gallerises to set out the events of the wartime experience, the Museum includes filmed interviews, photographs and documents to present historical events through the memories of people. 3. Conducting an international "Generations Remember" Conference in Warsaw and other events around the world. The conference is typically attended by people from in Poland and from countries like the USA, Canada, UK, South Africa and Australia. Several are from the wartime generation and the rest are their children and grandchildren.

goals

The Foundation's statutory objectives comprise the following: a. recounting Polish citizens’ lives in Poland before and during the Second World War and their life in exile during and after the war; b. having an initial focus on the experiences of Polish citizens affected by the Soviet invasion and occupation of eastern Poland, including their subsequent experiences; c. preserving the memory of the former Eastern Borderlands of the Second Republic of Poland prior to Soviet occupation and of the Polish citizens of different ethnicities and religions who had lived there for centuries; d. supporting the exiled Polish citizens and their descendants in research of the fate of their families and help them expand their knowledge about their Polish roots and strengthen their connections with the Polish nation; e. supporting cooperation between the members of Polonia and Poles living abroad with the Polish nation in the areas of education, research, culture, religion and economics; f. teaching the appreciation of Polish culture in Polonia communities; g. deepening the knowledge and appreciation of Polonia and the Polish emigration in Poland.

The German-Russian Museum is located at the historic site of the surrender of the German Armed Forces on 8 May 1945 in Berlin-Karlshorst. Nowadays it is a place where twese former wartime enemies jointly recall some of their common history. The permanent exhibition documents this war from the perspective of both parties, German and Soviet. The territory occupied by the Wehrmacht was where the murder of European Jews began. But German warfare and occupation rule was also responsible for other crimes, like the mass death of Soviet prisoners of war in German custody or the planned starvation of millions of civilians. The consequences of World War II are also explored in the exhibition.
