Dear Stefan - thanks for spreading the word about the upcoming Pilecki event at the USHMM! We're excited that the Holocaust Museum is recognizing Pilecki in this way.
Anyone who is interested in attending can RSVP to USHMM at this link (while the event is free and open to the public, space is limited so reservations are requested):
In case anyone had trouble opening the attachment in Stefan’s message, a pdf of the event flyer can also be downloaded from our website at:
