Representatives of the Hungarian Committee of National Remembrance (NEB) visited the IPN - 15 October

On 15 October, at the headquarters of the Institute of National Remembrance, a meeting of the Deputy President of the Institute of National Remembrance Prof. Krzysztof Szwagrzyk with representatives of the Hungarian Committee of National Remembrance was held.

The meeting was attended by Áron Máthe - Vice-Chair of the  Committee of National Remembrance (equivalent to the Institute of National Remembrance), Attila Viktor Soós - member of the NEB's  Board, Lánczi Tamás, expert in politics, Zoltán Hegedűs, leader of public opinion associated with such think tanks as the Central European Press and Media Foundation (KESMA) and Tranzit, and Joanna Urbańska - head of the Polish Institute in Budapest.

The purpose of the visit was to draw attention of the political and scientific Hungarian elite to recent history of Poland in the context of the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II, as well as to establish close cooperation between institutions and communities shaping historical policy in Poland and Hungary.

The invited historians have an impact on shaping Hungarian education in their field of specialization, which is why it is so important to show them the most symbolic places related to the martyrdom of Poles, as well as to depict in a reliable and dimensioned way the heroism of Polish society and the enormity of losses suffered by Poland as a result of German-Soviet occupation. After their visit to the IPN, the Hungarian delegates will also meet with Jacek Pawłowicz, Director of the Museum of Cursed Soldiers and Political Prisoners of the Polish People's Republic, and visit all museums in Warsaw related to the martyrdom of World War II.
