Polish connection revived - George Square

A school of medicine for Polish exiles during World War 2 was set up in Edinburgh in 1941.  From Wednesday this week it is commemorated in an exhibition in Edinburgh University's Main Library in George Square.

Seventy years on, the exhibition tells the story of the graduates of the school, some of whom are in their eighties and nineties.  The exhibition is open from 4th May to 10th June.  See here for more details of the history, a polish medicine memorial fund and the exhibition times.
