The fight for memory is the foundation of our future. Thanks to a museum such as this one, history will not remain silent about its heroes said the Prime Minister.

He recalled that according to historians it is estimated that since 1 September 1944 until the end of 1945, the Polish anticommunist independence underground had carried out around 12 thousand armed actions. That was a great determination against the enormous strength of the enemy, the enemy of Polish freedom and Polish independence. As he emphasized, we owe them eternal memory.

The Head of Government thanked all those who fight for historical truth, for naming the evil as evil, and the good as good. He added that only on such a foundation we can build a great, magnificent Poland and solidarity.

During the celebration, the Prime Minister visited also the exhibition of selected exhibits from the Museum’s collection.
