    Anti-communist dissidents and communism victims have been honoured

    The former Polish anti-communist opposition and political victims of the communist era were honored during the Saturday ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Warsaw. Letters on this occasion were sent by President Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.


    Duda wrote that he felt deep respect for all who had the courage to oppose the communist regime. “I bow my head before the heroism of all those who had the courage to stand up to the communist regime. (..) There is no doubt that 1989 was a breakthrough year for our country, a breakthrough attained thanks to the determination of whole generations of oppositionists.” – Duda wrote quoted by PAP. Morawiecki reminded that the ceremony, part of a simultaneous 1st National Congress of Anticommunist Opposition Activists and Persons Repressed on Political Grounds, was taking place on the 38th anniversary of the Polish communist government’s December 13 1981 imposition of martial law in the country.
