Historical Polish documents entered into UNESCO's Memory of World Documents

Historic documents from Polish archival collections which have newly entered UNESCO's Memory of the World Register exhibited over the weekend in Warsaw, Kraków and Gniezno, after the formal registry certificates were presented last Friday by Culture Minister Małgorzata Omilanowska at a ceremony at the Presidential Palace.

In honor of Father Jerzy Popiełuszko

PM Ewa Kopacz has laid flowers and lit a candle at the grave of Father Jerzy Popiełuszko on the 30th anniversary on Sunday of his murder by communist secret services officers.

Father Popiełuszko, who was beatified by the Roman Catholic Church in 2010 – a major step towards sainthood – was beaten to death by three members of the communist secret services on 19 October 1984 his body was then dumped into the Vistula Water Reservoir near Włocławek, north of the Polish capital.
The murder of the priest, who was a prominent member of the anti-communist opposition, caused uproar in Poland and his funeral on 3 November 1984 was attended by up to 250,000, including Solidarity trade union leader Lech Walesa.

The priest’s killers - Captain Grzegorz Piotrowski, Leszek Pękala and Waldemar Chmielewski of the communist Security Service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (SB) - were tried and imprisoned for the murders, though later pardoned in an amnesty.

Jerzy Popiełuszko's murder was featured in director Agnieszka Holland's 1988 movie starring Tim Roth, 'To kill a priest'.
