On 15 June in Krakowskie Przedmieście Street an exhibition entitled Others –Strangers – Friends devoted to refugees will be open. It consists of 28 unique photographs by Jacek Herok presenting the profiles of refugees from Warsaw and its surroundings. The protagonists represent various continents, cultures and religions. They all have one thing in common: they arrived to Poland for fear of persecutions that they had experienced in their country of origin.
The aim of the exhibition Others – Strangers – Friends is to increase social sensitivity to cultural diversity of the residents of today Warsaw and propagate the attitude of respect and tolerance towards people regardless of their nationality, race, culture or religion. We would also like to show that refugees constitute an integral part of the Polish society.
