„Mom, I don’t want war! – Мамо, я не хочу війни! – Mamo, ja nie chcę wojny!”
January 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In collaboration with the Polish Museum of America, the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Chicago and the Consulate General of Ukraine in Chicago, the Ukrainian National Museum is showcasing Polish children’s WWII drawings juxtaposed to Ukrainian children’s war drawings in 2022.
The exhibition is a part of the joint Polish-Ukrainian project “1939-45 Poland / 2022 Ukraine. It will benefit the Ukrainian Women’s Association of America (UWAA) —a non-profit whose mission is to help provide Ukrainian children with the happy, healthy childhood they deserve. UWAA is actively supporting City of Goodness (Chernivtsi, Ukraine) which offers shelter, counseling, support and love to orphans, single mothers, their children, and even family pets. They will be on hand to present about City of Goodness and their ongoing efforts.
The Academy of Music of the Paderewski Symphony Orchestra and Elehia, a Ukrainian music school, will perform.
