    On Thursday, November 9, 2017 at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., Ambassador Piotr Wilczek and Senator Anna Maria Anders, Plenipotentiary of the Prime Minister for International Dialogue, jointly opened the exhibit about the Army of General Władysław Anders.

    “The story of the Anders Army and their Trail of Hope is in many ways a story of Poland. It is a story of incredible hardship, and unsurpassed determination. A story of courage, heroism, and a will to fight for all that is good and just” explained Ambassador Piotr Wilczek. “I’m glad that this exhibit is accessible for young people especially as we celebrate Poland’s Independence Day on November 11. The exhibit’s mission is to educate” noted Senator Anders.

     

    The exhibit is displayed on Georgetown University thanks to the efforts of the Embassy of the Republic of Poland and Professor Iwona Sadowska, director of Polish Studies at the University. The exhibit opening was attended by, among others, descendants of soldiers of the Anders Army, American students and members of Polonia.

     

    The exhibit, which was inaugurated at the Chancery of the Prime Minister on the 75th anniversary of the Army’s establishment, recalls the events which led to the founding of the Polish Armed Forces in the USSR. The exhibit tells of Polish hopes for freedom and the trail of the unique “Army of Hope” on its road to a free Poland. In October the exhibit was presented in the United States Congress. Now it is once again available to the public in Washington, DC at the Intercultural Center Galleria at Georgetown University until November 17, 2017.
