The Warsaw Institute Review
The Warsaw Institute Review is a free Polish magazine of the Warsaw Institute Foundation. We would like to present a broad spectrum of topics concerning Poland, a leader among East-Central European countries, in the form of analytical articles on political, legal, economic, social, historical and institutional issues. The authors of the articles in The Warsaw Institute Review are, on the one hand, analysts and experts, and on the other hand, people who have an active and practical influence on Poland’s political, economic and cultural life.

For every epoch there are images that can be considered symbolic.
In addition to the physical destruction of the inhabitants of Warsaw and the city itself, pre-war private art collections of the city’s residents were almost entirely lost. While some museums and libraries managed to recover after the war, largely uncatalogued private collections were gone.
