The Office of Search and Identification

The Office of Search and Identification looks for unidentified burial sites of the soldiers struggling for independence and victims of totalitarian oppression from the period between 8 November 1917 and 31 July 1990. It restores the memory about the people who have been condemned to oblivion by the communist authorities. A team of historians, archeologists, forensic experts and geneticists conducts research and exhumations in many places in Poland and abroad.
