Join us at a conference at the Warsaw Rising Museum on 12-13 April 2018, in Warsaw, Poland, exploring the challenges of the conservation and preservation of items from WWII.

  • research issues concerning the technology of manufacturing historical items from WWII

  • case studies of challenging conservation treatments of WWII items

  • challenges of preserving and exhibiting wartime items

  • reception of the conservation treatment of wartime items by the museum visitors

  • modern analytical techniques in examining the items from WWII
