This panel exhibition tells the captivating story of Count Paul Edmund Strzelecki, a Polish humanitarian, thanks to whose efforts c. 200,000 children were saved during the Great Irish Famine. As the main agent of the British Relief Association (B.R.A.), Strzelecki developed a visionary and exceptionally effective mode of assistance: feeding starving children directly through the schools. At its peak in 1848, around 200,000 children from all denominations were being fed, many of whom would have otherwise perished from hunger and disease.
