Temporary exhibition "Polish and Romanian women who changed the world"
Buzau County Museum, a culture and research institution operating under the authority of Buzau County Council, announces the opening of the temporary exhibition "Polish and Romanian women who changed the world".
Made in collaboration with Polish Cultural Institute in Bucharest, the exhibition will be displayed in the open air, on the fence of the Buzău County Museum, remaining open to the public during March 4 - April 4, 2022.
The exhibition project brings together the fascinating stories of 17 Poles and 17 Romanians, who excelled in various fields, some of them dedicating their lives to the fight against communism and being repressed by the totalitarian regime. The 34 women are personalities more or less known to the general public, not to mention those who, in both countries, are true symbols, such as Elisabeta Rizea. The brave peasant woman fought for years against the communist regime, within the resistance movement in the Făgăraș Mountains, remaining faithful to her convictions, despite the fact that she was imprisoned and tortured. Among the Polish heroines who fought against the communist regime was Elżbieta Zawacka, a female soldier who performed special missions during World War II. Closed later by the Communists for several years, she became, after 1989, one of the first two women in the Polish Army to be promoted to the rank of general.
