Monuments war in Poland: volunteers restore, authorities demolish
Warsaw plans to liquidate about 300 monuments dedicated to the memory of Soviet soldiers that were restored by Kursk military-patriotic organization. It's been five years since Kursk members started restoration of WW2 heritage monuments in Poland, RIA Novosti informs.
According to the Kursk leader Jerzy Tyc, in the current situation the volunteers of monuments' preservation movement have become the Polish government opposition.
As we reported before, Polish organization Kursk is virtually the only organisation dealing with restoration of graves and monuments to the Soviet soldiers on charity grounds. Almost forty memorials around Poland have been restored by means of the organization. Kursk exists solely on voluntary contributions. Last year's budget amounted to 12,000 euro.
Jerzy Tyc underlined that the Institute of National Remembrance with its 100 million euro year budget has converted to a Ministry of Propaganda. They can order any law to be passed the blink of an eye. In particular, Poland's new decommunisation law was adopted on its initiative.
Kursk is going to publish the catalogue of Soviet Soldiers - Poland liberators memorials. Out 600 only 200 survived to our days. To make this catalogue done a huge work needs to be done, the Kursk leader noted.
