Comemmorating Seweryn Pieniężny

Thanks to cooperation with newkaliningrad.ru and przegladbaltycki.pl web portals, I co-authored an article in Polish and Russian on Seweryn Pieniezny. He was a prominent figure of the Ermland (Warmia in Polish) province in the early 20th century and the interwar period. He fought for keeping the region’s identity and its strong ties with Polish language and culture. Pieniężny was arrested by German authorities on September 1st, 1939, and detained in the Hohenbruch labour/concentration camp. He was murdered there on February 24th, 1940.

The articles were published as a part of my work as Vice-Consul at Consulate General of Poland in Kaliningrad.
