  • Portraits of the six Presidents residing in exile were unveiled in the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in London by Ambassador Witold Sobków, former First Lady Karolina Kaczorowska and General Władysław Anders's daughter Anna Maria Anders.

     

    The Government-in-Exile is now visibly commemorated in the Embassy, also with the function rooms from today on bearing the names of three great émigré statesmen: General Władysław Sikorski, General Władysław Anders, and President Ryszard Kaczorowski.

     

    The ceremony marked the 25th anniversary of a poignant moment in Polish history. On 22 December 1990, the last of the Presidents of the Republic of Poland residing in London – Ryszard Kaczorowski – travelled to Warsaw to hand over the insignia of his office to the first democratically elected president of post-war Poland – Lech Wałęsa. The Government-in-Exile fulfilled its mission by providing that institutional and symbolic link between the Second and the Third Polish Republic.
