This year's Remembrance Day marks not just 100 years since the end of the First World War and Armistice Day, but also the 100th anniversary of Polish independence. This exhibition celebrates Bedford's Polish community, many of whom settled following the Second World War. View a film showing the 'history keepers' from the Polish community highlighting their shared stories.
