Polish-Russian Reconciliation: Implications for Europe
4:00 PM -  5:30 PM
Lecture by Adam Daniel Rotfeld, professor of humanities, Warsaw University; and former Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs

The current state of Polish-Russian relations carries the burden of history, such as the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact under which the Soviet Union and Germany secretly agreed to divide and invade Poland in 1939 and the Katyn Massacre for which the Soviets falsely blamed the Germans for killing thousands of Polish officers in 1940. Dialogue between Polish and Russian intellectuals, researchers and experts on this matter initiated in 2008, opened the new stage in Polish-Russian relations. As the result the common Polish-Russian Group on Difficult Matters was established.
