The Reluctant Exiles: Polish Resettlement Camps in Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds 1946 -1970.

Tuesday, 26 September 2017 - 2:30pm

A talk by Dr Hubert Zawadski.  The Second World War and its immediate aftermath brought thousands of Polish servicemen and civilians to Britain. Of the numerous Polish resettlement camps across Britain in 1946-70, 14 were situated in Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire. The talk will explain why such camps were established and will set their story in the wider context of international politics. Hubert himself lived in various Polish resettlement camps in Britain until the age of 11, the last one near Chipping Camden. His talk, illustrated with many photographs, will give an insight into what life was like in these camps.
