The film "The Unconquered" to be screened in Polish schools in Canada - April-May 2018

Upon the decision of the President of the Institute of National Remembrance Dr. Jarosław Szarek, the coordinated screening of the "Unconquered" film during history lessons in all Polish schools in Canada, registered in the Canadian Polish Teachers' Union will take place under the patronage of the IPN. The action planned for April and May 2018 was made possible thanks to the efforts and involvement of the Polish Consulate General in Toronto and the Polish Teachers' Union in Canada.

The film "The Unconquered " is an excellent form of disseminating knowledge about the history of Poland among the Polish-Canadian youth. The fact that students of educational institutions will be able to see it - young people, for whom knowledge about their roots and the history of their own nation is an essential aspect of their identity, perfectly fits in with the mission of the Institute of National Remembrance.

One of the tasks of the Institute of National Remembrance is to build social ties around memory and history, therefore, the patronage over the screening of " The Unconquered " during history lessons, will effectively implement the mission of promoting and commemorating key historical moments among the younger generation. Through popular culture, in the form of an animated film, Poles who are growing up abroad will have the opportunity to gain reliable knowledge as well as arguments necessary to conduct factual and substantive discussions on historical topics on the international arena.

The undertaking is the effect of arrangements made between Krzysztof Grzelczyk - Polish Consul General in Toronto and Jan Baster - Deputy President of the Institute of National Remembrance during the visit of the Institute's delegation to Canada in February 2018. It is also connected with the cooperation agreement signed between the Institute of National Remembrance and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on 26 June 2017.
