The Embassy of Poland in Berlin and The Foundation for the Polish-German Reconciliation co-organized an Exhibition and its unveiling at an opening ceremony in commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of Poland’s Independence on the 6th of July, 2018.
The Exhibition presents the efforts and achievements of several generations of Poles who did not give up on regaining their statehood. Poland regained its independence on the 11th of November, 1918, after 123 years of partitions by Austria-Hungary, Germany and Russia.
The exhibition has been officially unveiled and opened by the member of Polish Senate, Stanisław Karczewski, the Ambassador to Germany, Andrzej Przyłębski, the Chairman of PZU SA Paweł Surówka and the President of the Foundation for Polish-German Reconciliation Jakub Deka.
The open exhibition “Jeszcze Polska nie zginęła” (Poland Has Not Yet Perished) is located in the center of Berlin right next to the Brandenburg Gate at the future building of the Polish Embassy (Unter den Linden 72) until Fall 2018. The name of the project is inspired by the national anthem of Poland titled “Mazurek Dąbrowskiego” (“Dąbrowski’s Mazurka”), which is also known by its incipit “Poland Is Not Yet Perished”.
The author and creator of the Poland Has Not Yet Purished Exhibition is Arkadiusz Stempin, a history professor from the Trischner European University in Kraków. The partner and main sponsor of the project is one of the biggest Polish Insurance Companies PZU SA.
The exhibition is an extraordinary opportunity to deepen the knowledge of the restoration of Poland’s sovereignty and its national heroes.
