Exhibition of printed ephemera from the January Uprising

On Monday, January 23, 2023 the First Ladies of the Republic of Lithuania and the Republic of Poland, Diana Nausėdienė and Agata Kornhauser-Duda, opened an exhibition of printed ephemera from the time of the January Uprising at the National Library of Poland.

As a result of the three partitions of 1772-1795, Poland's territory was occupied by three states: Russia, Prussia and Austria. Poland disappeared entirely from the map of Europe and it began a 123-year period of partition. The Poles attempted to reclaim their lost state on more than one occasion. One of the most important and longest-lasting attempts to regain independence was the January Uprising of 1863-1864, whose 160th anniversary falls in 2023.

The exhibition of printed ephemera mounted by the National Library of Poland presents valuable documents from the years 1861-1864, including materials revealing the genesis of the January Uprising, the Uprising Manifesto and related enfranchisement deeds of January 22, 1863, and other printed ephemera testifying to the functioning of the secret Polish state and its structures during the Uprising. The materials presented include an invitation to a patriotic church service from the period of pre-insurrection patriotic manifestations, manifestoes and proclamations issued by the Central National Committee and the National Government, government decrees, an order from the conspiratorial Head of the City of Warsaw, and a printout of a national loan bond.
