ODRATEKA – a great collection of memorabilia dedicated to the Oder
Oder – a river of many generations
The Oder river’s had a significant impact on the millions of people inhabiting its basin for hundreds of years. It affected the inhabitants in many spheres of life. It’s had a strong culture-forming role for many nations through many generations. Among the memories of families and their ancestors, the Oder often appears not only in stories but also in photos, documents and objects of everyday life. In 2015 the OnWater.pl foundation created the first archive in Poland under the name ODRATEKA, which will be available to everyone at the Odra Centrum >>>
ODRATEKA – the largest collection of exhibits dedicated to the river
ODRATEKA is an unlimited database of photos, film materials and other exhibits that preserves the history of the river and its inhabitants over the centuries. ODRATEKA is a project that is addressed to all those who want to get to know the Oder or simply to learn more about it. We invite you all to use and co-create resources of ODRATEKA, regardless of your age or profession.
If you know where to find or you have things that can become exhibits in ODRATEKA, please contact us and we will do the rest. We will keep them for future generations, we will carefully take care of them (because we love the Oder!) and we will exhibit them in the Odra Centrum >>
