The Museum of Prisoner of War Camps in Szubin will study and preserve the memory of a little-known aspect of the region’s 20th-century history: the thousands of POWs from Allied nations held in the local Nazi-German camps during World War II. The history will be told within the broader context of the establishment and functioning of the German POW camp network in German-occupied Poland; the stories and camp life of the Allied prisoners; and, the relationships between the Szubin locals and the prisoners.

The museum will provide a separate space for research-related events (conferences, lectures, discussions), educational activities (museum lessons) and cultural events (concerts, temporary exhibitions). 

Already designated as a Place of National Memory, the site will become an important spot on the map for all those who are interested in World War II and the experiences of the POWs: tour groups, POW descendants, academic researchers, and those with a keen interest in history. 

A bronze scale-model of the entire camp complex will be placed at the entrance to the camp compound.
