    You are welocme to the new website of The Polish Barrack Museum in Tågerup.

    The Polish Barrack Museum in Tågerup is a memorial of the presence on the island of Lolland of young women from Galicja (the south-eastern part of Poland, under the Austrian / Austro-Hungarian rule from 1772 to 1918), seasonal workers living on this place at the turn of the 19th and 20th century, finding work in the sugar beet cultivation in Southern Denmark. The museum is placed in the building, where the women were living (Polakkasernen), and it is open for visitors during the summer months. On the web page http://www.polakkasernen.dk/en/  you can find information on the history of the so called ‘beet’ migration, photographs from the new exhibition of the museum as well as souvenir pictures of the first Polish economic migrants in Denmark.

     

    The web page was completed thanks to co-financing by the Polish Diaspora Funds of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland
