The competition for a memorial to the victims of the plane crash

Between 10 April 2011 and 31 December 2011, a competition will be held for a design for a memorial to the victims of the aeroplane crash near Smoleńsk on 10 April 2010.

 

On 11 April 2011, the competition will be solemnly opened by the President of the Republic of Poland in the presence of the President of the Russian Federation.

 

The organizer of the competition is the Minister of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation. The memorial will be erected at the scene of the crash on the territory of the Russian Federation. The aim of the competition is to select the artistically best design.

 

It is an open international competition. The jury, to be appointed by the Minister of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland, will likewise be international. All inscriptions to be placed on or around the memorial will be in two languages.

 

The Polish side will finance the competition, the execution and any financial awards for the winners. The Russian side will bear all the costs related to land development and the location of the memorial.

A commemoration of the aeroplane crash will show the Poles, the Russians and the world as a whole that our two nations are able to work together, thus giving expression to the highest values and showing deep respect for all those who have passed away leaving us behind.
