“There should be a museum in Warsaw to commemorate the fifty years of the war Poles had to fight. For Poland the Second World War wasn’t over until 1989.”

Janusz Kurtyka, 1 April 2009

History, Truth, and the Present Times: Conducting International Relations in the Context of the Past is a cycle of discussions supplemented by related publications intended to identify and diagnose the key issues in Poland’s international relations viewed within the context of different interpretations of the past, the formulation of practical recommendations, and the presentation of conclusions in the form of books, videos and text media.

The Foundation is working on this project with a team of experts and academics. Our guests have included Professor Andrzej Nowak, Professor Tomasz Panfil, Witold Jurasz, Father Tadeusz Isakowicz-Zaleski, Agnieszka Romaszewska-Guzy, Wojciech Jakóbik, and Piotr Semka.

The result of our discussions is a growing data base of practical information which is available to institutions involved with public diplomacy, third-sector organisations, and private individuals.
