    In connection with the 78th anniversary of the outbreak of World War Two, Minister Witold Waszczykowski took part in a commemorative ceremony at Westerplatte with Prime Minister Beata Szydło and other members of the government.

    In Warsaw, MFA Undersecretary of State Bartosz Cichocki honoured employees of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs who lost their lives in 1939-1945 by laying a wreath at a plaque commemorating Polish diplomats.

     

    The names of 69 MFA employees who died in 1939-1945 are inscribed on a plaque built into the facade of the MFA building at al. Szucha. Each year, on the anniversary of the outbreak of WW2, they are commemorated by a symbolic laying of flowers by the MFA senior staff. The memorial plaque, founded by MFA employees, families and colleagues of the fallen, was unveiled on the 50th anniversary of the outbreak of World War Two on 1 September 1989.
