From: Cabinet Director-Head Office
Presidency of the Republic of Poland
Warsaw, July 26 2004
Dear Doctor Resnizky,
On behalf of the President’s Office I am writing to thank you for your letter notifying us of the creation of The Centre of Polish Heroes in Argentina and for informing us of its goals.
Your initiative is very much appreciated by the Head of the President’s Office, Minister Jolanta Szymanek-Deresz.
All activities directed against xenophobia and every other kind of prejudice deserve the utmost support. This is particularly important when it comes to relations between Poles and Jews, whose nearly 1000-year-old co-existence in the same country was brutally interrupted by the Holocaust. We are interested in spreading worldwide the truth about Polish-Jewish relations in its entirety. We fully share your view that it is essential to commemorate the deeds of those Poles who risked their own lives to help their Jewish compatriots during World War II.
Ms. Szymanek-Deresz has passed your letter to the President, who has expressed his deep interest in and recognition of your initiative.
On behalf of Ms. Szymanek-Deresz, I would like once again to thank you for all your achievements and wish you every success in your noble mission.
Yours sincerely, (signed)
