Many countries are helping Ukraine protect its museum collections and conserve its National Heritage that is threatened, or has been damaged, and destroyed by Russia’s devastating war. From the very first days of the invasion Polish museum professionals have been active in providing such assistance, and they continue to do the lion’s share of this work. Hear from those working on the ground, who are directly involved in organising aid, and helping in many other ways, within Poland and in Ukraine.
