Osso moje Osso (Osso my Osso)
In the film we show the Ossolińskich National Library, one of the most important institutions of the Polish science and culture, which has been in existence almost from the beginning of the nineteenth century. After the Second World War and as a result of the shift of Polish borders to the east, it was divided into two separate entities – the National Science Library of Vasyl Stefanyk in Lviv and another one which was established after the war in Wrocław, where many Poles from Lviv were relocated. It was the continuation of the former Ossolińskich National Library, which obtained a proportion (about one third) of the collection of the Lviv foundation.
The film shows the rich history of Ossolineum and its collections in Lviv and Wrocław. Another important aspect is the portrayal of the current situation and the exemplary cooperation of Poles and Ukrainians from both institutions. It also shows these two beautiful cities, full of monuments and history. The film depicts the drama that touched the Poles from Lviv, who had to leave their small homeland and create a new one in a different place. It was also beautiful and despite the geographical, historical and architectural differences had much in common with the place they had left.
