In 1944, during the Warsaw Rising, the Western Allies launched a special operation known as the Warsaw Airlift to drop supplies such as weapons, amunition, medicines, food and clothes to the Poles struggling for freedom in Warsaw, the heart of their occupied country. Four-engine bombers – Liberators, Halifaxes and B-17s had usually seven crew members on board. The aircrafts took off from the airfields in Southern Italy and (once) from Great Britain. The airlift was an example of superhuman heroism. What made it all possible? Skills, cleverness, luck and… faith in God, as the crew members recalled.
The Committee for Ukrainian Museums – founded to help Ukrainian cultural institutions in the face of Russian aggression – invites all, to support the cause and raise funds for the acquisition of electronic equipment that will help Ukrainian museums digitalize their collections.
In order to prevent catastrophe when cultural property is being destroyed we have established The Committee for Ukrainian Museums (Komitet Pomocy Muzeom Ukrainy) to support our colleagues in Ukraine, says Jan Ołdakowski, Director of the Warsaw Rising Museum (PAP). “Our joint effort to preserve the cultural and national heritage of Ukraine is our joint struggle”, he adds.
Russian aggression against Ukraine has already led to countless crimes and caused victims and suffering. In such circumstances, people are most important. The people facing barbarous bombing and the soldiers fighting against the aggressor. Today the Ukrainians pay with their lives to defend their Homeland. However, any war leads also to irreparable loss of cultural and national heritage.
