We shall remember/Emlékeinkben has already been presented in Budapest, Warsaw, Białystok and Gdańsk. It is on tour visiting Katowice, Łodź, Poznań, Szczecin. A special presentation in Smolensk is planned in 2014. The exhibition recapitulates the achievements of Andrzej Przewoźnik, not only as historian and social activist but also as one of the authors of the Polish remembrance policy.
Andrzej Przewoźnik was a historian, the long term Secretary General of the Council for the Protection of Struggle and Martyrdom Sites, who died tragically in the Smolensk catastrophe. He had earned himself the reputation of a guardian of remembrance and truth, as the organiser of the Katyń Massacre commemorations, creator of Polish war cemeteries in Katyń, Charków and Miednoje, a member of the Museum Council of the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum in Oświęcim-Brzezinka and the Museum of Independence in Warsaw. He is known for standing above party-political divisions and and disputes. Mr. Przewoźnik was one of the founders of European Network Remembrance and Solidarity. A great friend of Hungary, an expert on its history and culture, he was awarded the Officer's Cross Order of Merit of the Republic of Hungary. It is therefore hardly by chance that the initiator of the exibition to recapitulate his work was Tibor Navracsics, PhD, Deputy Prime Minister of Hungary and Minister of Public Administration and Justice.
