Among tasks of Silesian Freedom and Solidarity Centre is conducting the exhibition in the Commemoration Museum of ‘Wujek’ Coal Mine as well as propagating freedom and anti-totalitarian ideas. Our institution was established as a result of an agreement between Silesian Voivodship and Katowice City.
The exposition is placed in a former coal-mine warehouse. Before the World War II in this building miners’ lamps were filled with carbide, later it was used as a warehouse of workers’ clothes and on 16 December 1981 it became a silent witness to tragic incidents of martial law. It is probably from the ramp of this building where the deadly shots were fired at the miners of Wujek Coal Mine.
