WORLD BATTLEFIELD MUSEUMS FORUM 2018

In 2018, at Museum of the Second World War in Gdansk, the first WBMF scientific conference was held as a professional and scholarly gathering of museum heads and professionals who care for world heritage battlefields. Exchange of ideas and experiences relating to former battlefields management and commemoration is important for us, especially that Westerplatte and War of 1939 Museum is currently under development.

The first edition of WBMF in 2018 was a great success. It included speakers and panelists from countries like the USA, France, Bulgaria, Turkey, Ukraine, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Belgium, Greece, China, and Poland. While we wait for the next year’s WBMF 2022 edition, you can explore a series of videos from WBMF 2018.
