Exhibition dedicated to Prof. Tadeusz Koszarowski


We extend a warm invitation to join us in viewing the new exhibition at the WUM Library and Information Centre, located in the reading room on the second floor. The exhibition, running from 20th May 2022 to 20th March 2023, pays tribute to the life and achievements of Prof. Tadeusz Koszarowski (1915-2002), a renowned surgeon, oncologist, scientist, healthcare organizer, social activist, humanist, and athlete.

Within the displays, you will find carefully selected memorabilia from the Professor’s legacy, generously donated to the Museum by Anna and Piotr Zborowski. Tadeusz Koszarowski served as the director of the Institute of Oncology in Warsaw for an extended period and was the driving force behind the creation of the Oncology Centre in Ursynów.

The professor’s contributions were far-reaching, as he developed innovative cancer prevention programs and pioneered diagnosis and treatment procedures through a nationwide network of oncology facilities. Additionally, he played a pivotal role in the establishment of Polish oncological surgery and initiated the National Cancer Control Programme.

This exhibition serves as a testament to Prof. Tadeusz Koszarowski’s lasting impact on the field of oncology and healthcare in Poland. We encourage you to join us in celebrating his life and extraordinary accomplishments.
