The diplomats viewed our collection, and we presented some Polish-related documents and images. A photograph of Pope John Paul II with our namesake and his correspondence with Józef Mackiewicz, a Polish writer in exile who was instrumental in the investigation of the Katyn massacre and is justly renowned for his literary work, were of particular interest to the guests.
During their visit, we discussed the general state of Polish-Hungarian relations. We also recalled our conference on the opportunities and constraints of regional cooperation held in May last year, which Piotr Arak, the Director of the Polish Economic Institute, a friend of Ambassador Kęciek, attended. We also reviewed the possibilities of cooperation within the V4 framework and considered with which Polish institutions our Foundation could establish partnerships in the future.
