Polish World War II Memorial Site

The mass killings of the Second World War, 1939-1945 triggered the exodus of many Polish people that included mainly Jews. Zambia under British control then became a host to many of these refugees. Three camps were set up. One was in Mbala (Abercorn that time) the other was in Livingstone and the other in Ndola. The place in Bwana Mkubwa, Ndola was host to a Polish refugee camp for 18,000 people and was their home for almost five years and was closed in 1948 long after the war had ended in Europe. A monument to mark their presence still lies at the campsite.
