The event began at the municipal cemetery in Borja by commemorating Liliana Skorel, alias "Dzidka", participant of the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, a liaison officer and member of the "Kilinski" battalion. She came to Spain after the war, together with her husband who was from Borja. The national anthems of Poland and Spain were played and a plaque funded by the Polish government was unveiled at her resting place. The Polish and Spanish inscriptions on the plaque read:
[In memory of Liliana Skorel alias "Dzidka" (20 March 1927 - 4 December 2012), a liaison officer in the Warsaw Uprising].
A prayer was said for the deceased and the wreaths were laid.
The main part of the celebration was the opening of the IPN exhibition "Warsaw Uprising 1944. The Battle for Poland" at the Centro de Estudios in Borja. The Spanish version of the exhibition was prepared by the IPN in cooperation with the Polish Institute in Madrid.
