Two unique publications addressing a forgotten and intentionally overlooked episode from the history of World War II. The catalogue presents the story of Krakow as the capital of the General Government, contains four introductory research articles, as well as about 350 illustrations and their descriptions. “Dissonant Heritage…” is a collection of 20 texts, supplemented with photographs, addressing the Nazi occupation and its material legacy in Poland.
Together, these publications constitute a unique compendium of current knowledge about the dissonant and problematic heritage of the Third Reich in Poland. Here you can find photos of famous places in the Nazi-designed setting, architectural and urban plans, articles about the most important Polish cities during the war, as well as about the displacement of Polish population. It is a story about Germanisation projects and wartime modernisation, about the memory that buildings erected during the period 1939–1945 are often deprived of today.
The set includes the English version of the book “Dissonant Heritage” and the album “Unwanted Capital” in the Polish-language version with an additional brochure in English – all placed in a cardboard package.
