    WWII experiences of Liverpool and Gdansk explored in new exhibition
    Aug 29 2009

    A TWO day exhibition commemorating the 70th anniversary of the start of World War Two opens at Liverpool Town Hall next week.

    The German invasion of Poland in September 1939 led Britain to go to war two days later, and the unique display focuses on the experience of Liverpool and the Polish city of Gdansk.

    The exhibition, which will be open on Tuesday and Wednesday, includes photographs of wartime damage of both cities, as well as period books, games and other household items.

    On Tuesday only, there will also be a rare display of the uniforms and equipment of the Luftwaffe crewmen who bombed Liverpool during the Blitz.

    The exhibition will be accompanied by an audio-visual presentation showing Liverpool?s experiences during the war, and music from the period.

    Mayor of Liverpool Councillor Mike Storey said: ?This exhibition is a strong and powerful reminder of the impact that World War Two had not just on Britain, but throughout Europe.

    ?Liverpool still bears the scars of the Blitz as it caused widespread damage, and many residents still have vivid memories of the impact it had on life in our city.

    ?We must never forget the many thousands of men, women and children who sacrificed their lives for our freedom, and this exhibition is an important and timely reminder of their contribution.

    ?Many of Liverpool?s residents have Polish ancestors, so I know there will be a great deal of interest from local people in the impact on Gdansk.?

    Brilliant snaps! I used to work in Fishlocks over the road from the Town Hall and we provided floral arrangements for many weddings hosted their. Loved every minute of it! Haven't been in it since, so gutted I missed an open day!

    Will have to keep my eyes peeled for another event like this!

    That's superb Howie. I know how difficult it can be getting shots like this. I'm still trying to get a decent interior shot of the dome in the Port of Liverpool Building. Thanks also for the info on the Town Hall exhibition.

    70th anniversary of start of Second World War marked by exhibition
    By Laura Davis on Aug 30, 09 02:20 PM

    A TWO day exhibition commemorating the 70th anniversary of the start of World War Two opens at Liverpool Town Hall for two days only this week.


    It was the German invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939, which led Britain to go to war two days later, and the unique display focuses on the experience of Liverpool and the Polish city of Gdansk.

    The exhibition, which is open on Tuesday September 1 and Wednesday September 2, includes photographs of wartime damage of both cities, as well as period books, games and other household items.
    On Tuesday only, there will also be a rare display of the uniforms and equipment of the Luftwaffe crewmen who bombed Liverpool during the blitz.

    The exhibition will be accompanied by an audio-visual presentation showing Liverpool's experiences during the war, and music from the period.

    The exhibition is collaboration between the city council, Northern Forties - a World War Two re-enactment group, and Merseyside Polonia, which works to develop relationships between the Polish community and local residents.

    Gosia McKane from Merseyside Polonia - who was born in Gdansk - has written a moving poem about the impact of the war on Liverpool, which she will read at the launch.

    She says: "I was brought up with images and stories of destruction of my hometown, and looking through the photographs of the air raids damage in Liverpool made me realise how much this city was devastated as well.

    "Among the landscape of ruins was the Liver Building standing defiantly - a symbol that the people here never give up.

    "I hope that visitors who come to see the exhibition will recognise how similar the experiences of the people in Liverpool and in Gdansk were after the war.

    "I very much appreciate that Liverpool is embracing its new communities and we can commemorate together the 70th Anniversary of World War Two, and pay our respects."

    The photographs included in the exhibition have been supplied by Gdansk History Museum and Liverpool Record Office.

    There will also be recent photographs of modern day Gdansk and Liverpool which were taken by young people from the Yellow House project who visited Poland in July.

    The launch will also include a poignant personal story from Councillor Laurence Sidorczuk, whose father was Polish and joined the British Army during World War Two.

    The exhibition will be open to the public on Tuesday September 1 from 2pm-5pm and Wednesday September 2 from 10am-4pm. Admission is free of charge.

    Profoundly deaf fashion designer brings catwalk show to Liverpool town hall
    Sep 5 2009

    A PROFOUNDLY deaf fashion designer is putting on a catwalk show at Liverpool town hall tomorrow.

    Christopher King recently graduated from the London College of Fashion and has created designs for Next.

    He now hopes to launch a new clothing label in his home city.

    Christopher, a former Broadgreen comprehensive pupil, said: ?My best subject in school was art because I found I had a natural appetite for it and it fitted well with my interest in clothing design and fashion.

    ?Now, after nine years of studying and a number of industrial and commercial work placements, I felt ready to launch my own clothing label and I?m delighted the Lord Mayor offered the use of the town hall.

    ?My new collection is inspired by the 1950s rock and roll style, and I hope to have them ready for spring 2010.?

    The show starts at 12pm.
