• Do not let independence go to waste!

    Edward Raczyński




    In 2014, we produced a short documentary series on the history of the Polish Government-in-Exile, featuring newly recorded interviews with witnesses of the past: First Lady Karolina Kaczorowska and her daughter Jagoda, First Lady Anna Sabbat and her daughter Jolanta, ministers Jerzy Ostoja-Koźniewski and Artur Rynkiewicz, two advisers to the Prime Minister: Andrzej Zakrzewski and Adam Ostoja-Ostaszewski, and Teresa Szadkowska – daughter of the last Chairman of the National Council Zygmunt Szadkowski.


    The success of the documentary series encouraged us to record new interviews with the families of leading émigré statesmen in 2015: President Stanisław Ostrowski’s nephew – Adam, President Edward Raczyński’s daughters – Katarzyna and Wirydianna, and General Władysław Anders’s daughter – Anna Maria. We have also asked a historian – Prof Norman Davies for an analysis of the work of the Polish Government-in-Exile.


    Thanks to English subtitles, the project has a chance of appealing also to a British audience.
