Meeting between the President of the Republic of Poland and the President of the State of Israel

On 26 January 2005, a meeting was held at Cracow’s Wawel Castle between the President of the Republic of Poland, Aleksander Kwaśniewski, and the President of the State of Israel, Moshe Katsav.

The Polish President thanked the Israeli President for paying a visit to Poland and for his participation in the ceremony to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. He emphasized that President Katsav is a special guest at this commemorative ceremony, since Auschwitz-Birkenau is a symbol of the Holocaust aimed at the extermination of the entire Jewish nation. The Polish President also informed the Israeli President that the municipal authorities of Warsaw and the government of the Republic of Poland have reached an agreement to embark shortly upon the construction of a Museum of the History of Polish Jews, a project designed to commemorate the over 800-year-long presence and achievements of the Jewish people in Poland.
The Israeli President thanked Aleksander Kwaśniewski for organising the ceremony to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, an anniversary considered by the Jews and by Israel to be one of the most important anniversaries connected with the end of World War II.
Subsequently, the two Presidents discussed the state of bilateral political and economic relations and the international situation, including from the perspective of the Middle East peace process and the stabilisation and reconstruction of Iraq.
