Hi Stefan, guess how many people attended yesterday's Holocaust event? All TWELVE of them!!! For 300 seats...
Talked today, ruinously, to Micheal, and got some valuable advice - will try to organise the showings of her film in London. I am delighted to find - through this network- so many 'free shooters' - enthusiastic, patriotic, and caring about reputation of Poland in the world. Maybe one day we should organise a conference in London, to bring such people with the fruit of their efforts, and try to make Poland 'sexy' again
(which it was, for instance, during Solidarity). On Febr. 23, during our trip to manchester, we are meeting the newly appointed director of the exhibitions at the IWM, who was invited to the screening (as well as two important MPs) - so we will discuss Bernard's Great idea (top secret still).
Before Christmas I sent about twenty cassettes, with political 'compilations' and strong letters demanding official recognition of the Siberian odyssey to MPs and Lords, leaders of the parties. Answers are slowly coming in, some apoplectic, some somewhat shattered - I just hope that they will start talking about it amongst themselves, and maybe will reach some decent conclusion.
Cheers for now, Jagna
