Paris Square to Be Named after Jan Karski

Paris Square to Be Named after Jan Karski

On June 17, 2019, one of the squares in the 10th District of Paris, France, will be named after Jan Karski.

The plan of honoring Karski in Paris has been in the making for many years. It is thanks to the current Ambassador of France to Poland, Pierre Levy, that the plan has finally come to fruition. The ceremony will include many honorable guests, such as ambassadors and mayors, as well as the President of Fundacja Edukacyjna Jana Karskiego in Warsaw, Poland (a sister organization of the Jan Karski Educational Foundation), Ewa Junczyk-Ziomecka. The following people are expected to deliver remarks:

  • Alexandra Cordebard, Mayor of the 10th District of Paris
  • Ewa Junczyk-Ziomecka, President of Fundacja Edukacyjna Jana Karskiego
  • Rafal Trzaskowski, Mayor of Warsaw
  • Patrick Klugman, Deputy Mayor of Paris in charge of International Affairs

 The unveiling of the plaque dedicated to Jan Karski will follow.
