President Andrzej Duda and Survivors will pay tribute to a Polish diplomat who saved more than 800 Jews

Polish Consul Konstanty Rokicki and his colleagues from the so-called Lados Group helped to save from the Holocaust more than 800 Jews who came from the Netherlands, Poland, Germany, Austria, France, Slovakia and other European countries in 1942–43. At least twenty of the Survivors are still alive. On 9 October, a new tombstone honoring Consul Rokicki will be unveiled at a cemetery in Lucerne. President Andrzej Duda and several dozen Survivors, their families and the Rescuers’ descendants will take part in the unveiling ceremony.

The Soviet Union committed itself to supporting Germany in its military operations against Poland.
