The México y Polonia: camino compartido (Mexico and Poland: A Common Path) exhibition has been mounted at the houses of parliament to mark 90 years since Mexico and Poland established diplomatic relations.
Tracing the history of bilateral ties, the show focuses on Polish General Władysław Sikorski's trip to Mexico in December 1942.
It features photographs from the visit, during which an agreement was signed to enable the establishment of a temporary safe haven for 1,453 Polish World War II refugees at Colonia Santa Rosa near the Mexican city of León.
An initiative by the Mexican embassy in Warsaw, the exhibition also celebrates the 100th anniversary of Poland recovering its independence in the aftermath of World War I.
