One heart, two countries

Dear visitor, we're giving you the special website built to preserve the true Polish-Israeli treasure: stories of lives bound between Poland and Israel.

It is important to discuss this difficult and complicated matter in a calm and balanced manner. It is necessary in order to turn to the future of the next generations, and not remain in the depths of history. Poland is not a country of cemeteries.

It was only when I ceased to be the university chancellor that I found time to examine the contents of the Albert Einstein Archives (...) from 1905.

A public task co-financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland in the competition “Public Diplomacy 2020 – a new dimension.”
