25km | Pruszkow | Museum Dulag 121

EUR 1.5 per person

museum-dulag-121-in-warsawDulag 121 (abbreviation of the German Durchgangslager 121) in Pruszkow was opened in August 1944. It was a transit camp, which housed the displaced inhabitants from Warsaw until January 1945, after their city was reduced to rubble and ashes. The museum was established in 2010 with the central theme of narrating the history of this dreadful period, as told by the displaced individuals, eyewitnesses, and locals.

Description

T he mission of Dulag 121 Museum is to preserve the memory of the fate of the displaced people and the sacrifice of those who aided them, collect information, disseminate knowledge, as well as document and publicize the history of Pruszkow and its vicinity.

The museum focuses on narratives of the displaced individuals, helpers, and the local population of Pruszkow and neighboring communities. Additionally, the museum displays photographs, letters, documents, and personal belongings of the displaced individuals. There are no German archival documents regarding the existence of Dulag 121.

Dulag 121 was the largest of its kind in occupied Poland. It is estimated that around 650,000 displaced individuals passed through Dulag 121.

The camp was set up on the grounds of railway repair facilities, converting large warehouses into sleeping quarters for the displaced. Today, the area hosts the logistics center of the Millennium Logistic Parks company, limiting access to the memorials.

Inside the museum’s main building, there is a 1:160 scale model of the camp covering an area of 7.5m x 2.5m.
