The Polish Migration Review / Polski Przegląd Migracyjny is a biannual periodical issued by the Emigration Museum in Gdynia. It is an interdisciplinary scientific journal devoted to migration issues, considered both from the historical and contemporary perspective, with particular emphasis on the issues of emigration from the Polish lands as well as the formation, transformations and development of Polish communities abroad.
It is with great pleasure and honour to launch the new scientific journal entitled "The Polish Migration Review" issued by the Emigration Museum in Gdynia, Poland.
It is estimated that 20 million Poles or people declaring Polish roots live outside of Poland. Migrations have accompanied Poles for decades, and have been caused by a number of reasons, i.e. wars, economic, political or personal circumstances. Poles form a substantial part of many communities worldwide and they have contributed significantly to the development of many societies and cultures across generations.
The Emigration Museum is the first and currently the only museum in Poland which tells the story of emigration from Poland and Polish lands across centuries, with a particular focus on the last two hundred years. The museum was officially opened on 16 May 2015. It is also one of the few museums in the world to be based in a historic location, which actually served for migration purposes in the past. The museum is located in the historic building of the Marine Station in Gdynia, which for many years witnessed thousands of emigrants, who left Poland through the Port of Gdynia in search of better life. One can say, we are the New York's Ellis Island based in Poland.
The Emigration Museum is a modern and active cultural institution. The scope of activities of the museum focuses on collections, permanent and temporary exhibitions, education programmes for a wide range of audiences, cultural and artistic projects, the oral history archive, as well as history and research initiatives. The museum is also a platform for the debate on the phenomenon of migration, both in terms of historical and contemporary facts and challenges. Special emphasis is put on migrations from Polish lands and the development and changes in Polish communities in various parts of the world.
"The Polish Migration Review" is an interdisciplinary, bilingual scientific journal, which forms the platform for analysis and dialogue on migration related issues, available both online and in a printed form. It is also a tool for comments on current social affairs and a perfect field to present migration experiences and challenges. The journal will also report on major activities undertaken by the Emigration Museum in the areas of history and research. While the "Polish Migration Review" journal is open for professional articles, the views expressed there are standpoints of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Emigration Museum in Gdynia and its organiser.
I invite you to rich and inspiring reading. I believe that professionals from various disciplines will find this journal a valuable source of information. I also look forward to seeing you at the Emigration Museum in Gdynia.
