In 2019 we celebrate the 95th anniversary of the establishment of the Border Protection Corps, a formation to which the Second Republic of Poland owes a great deal. The Corp existed for 15 years. During this time, it guarded the Eastern borders, contributing to the development of the borderland regions, to finally bravely stand against the Soviet invasion. Today’s Border Guard is the heir to the best traditions of the Corps. Reminding the history of the formation, commemorating the daily service and victims of the KOP soldiers - these goals guided the Institute of National Remembrance and the Border Guard Headquarters during the organization of the national celebrations of the 95th anniversary of the establishment of the Border Protection Corps, which took place in Lublin (Centre for the Meeting of Cultures) on 9 October. The official ceremonies were attended by representatives of state, local authorities and the army. The event was also attended by the President of the Institute of National Remembrance, Dr. Jarosław Szarek, and Chief of Border Guard, Maj. Gen. SG Tomasz Praga.
