    Until mid-June, the Estonian Film Museum, a branch of the Estonian History Museum, is hosting an exhibition devoted to relations between Poland and Estonia in the interwar period.

    The exhibition was opened on 5 February this year by Jarosław Sellin, Secretary of State in the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Estonia, and Tarvi Sits, Undersecretary of State in the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Estonia. The opening gathered numerous distinguished guests, including the Minister of Defence of the Republic of Estonia Juri Luik, representatives of the diplomatic corps, Estonian administration, historical circles and the world of culture.


    The exhibition documents the development of bilateral relations in the interwar period in various aspects: political, military, economic and social. The exhibition is accompanied by a presentation of Estonian chronicles from that period. These chronicles were renovated and digitalized at the initiative and from the resources of the Polish Embassy in Tallinn. An additional element is the exhibition of original portraits of Marshal J. Piłsudski from the 1930s by Zdzisław Czermański. These portraits, signed by Marshal E. Rydz -Śmigły, were most probably donated to August Pulst in recognition of the merits of his brother Mihkel Pulst in the Polish-Bolshevik war. Discovered accidentally in one of the  villas in Tallinn in 2014, they were purchased and renovated by the Polish Embassy in Tallinn.
