It is known that the suitcase belonged to a resident of occupied Warsaw named Katarzyna Boyarska. During the uprising in August 1944, she used this luggage to store her personal belongings, including valuable letters dating back to 1943 and 1944.

The museum urged citizens to be more careful about old things before getting rid of them. It is noted that some items that seem unimportant can be of great value to museum collections.

As a reminder, two stone anchors of the Greek Archaic period were discovered near Syracuse.
