"From 1939 to 1940, the Germans carried out mass murders in the Piaśnica forests. In 1944, they tried to destroy evidence of this crime. They did not succeed - traces remained. Empty graves remained, full graves remained, despairing empty hearts of relatives remained, empty houses remained and memories of witnesses remained (albeit few).
Today, 80 years after the outbreak of the Second World War, the memory of Piaśnica is still alive. While working near Wejherowo with young artists from various parts of Europe, we looked for ways to educate these artists about the events of Piaśnica, whilst utilising photography as a means of conveyance. We searched for narrative and visual language that could show the importance of history for present and future generations."
- Katarzyna Sagatowska, curator of the exhibition and author of photography workshops
