From the exhibits gathered in the Museum, a permanent exhibition was organised, which includes, among others, documents, photographs, manuscripts, volumes of poetry published during the poet’s lifetime and post-war editions of his work.
Few personal items of Józef Czechowicz have survived. His Warsaw apartment at 11a Narbutta Street, abandoned by the poet in the first days of September 1939, was quickly robbed of items of material value. Luckily, the manuscripts, typescripts, draft notebooks and some of the books survived, brought out from the apartment by Wacław Mrozowski. The few items that have been collected are presented at the exhibition. These are, among others, two bells brought from France, a tablecloth and napkins with the initials of the author of Stone sewn by the poet’s sister – Katarzyna Głuszewska. The exhibition is complemented by a spoon belonging to Józef Czechowicz’s parents with the engraved initials of his father – Paweł, and items from before World War II that correspond to the description of the items in the poet’s room. These few objects are worth confronting with the very rich literary legacy of Józef Czechowicz, which was left behind by the author who tragically died only at the age of 36.
