The exhibition is introduced by the quotation "We wanted to be free and owe this freedom to nobody" by the Polish government Deputy Prime Minister Jan Stanisław Jankowski on September 1, 1944, which expresses  the gist of the Rising.

Bearing in mind that the target audience is foreigners, the narrative provides for the basic facts, skillfully introducing visitors to the history of Poland. Particularly important is the text layer of the exhibition, which is based on a simple and legible message, emphasizing values universally ​​understood - fight against oppression, pursuit for freedom, independence, dignity, resistance to totalitarianism.

Each module is illustrated with iconographic material from the archive of the Warsaw Rising Museum, with particular emphasis on photographs from the Rising and objects from the Museum collections. The Georgian presentation includes panel on the engagement of soldiers of Georgian origin as well as the role of Georgians in Polish Army before and during the WWII.
