On September 27 2015 the Pilsudski Institute was privileged to host the visit  of the President of Poland, Andrzej Duda. The purpose of the visit was to meet members of the Institute’s Board of Directors and to see our collections. The President was shown the paintings and a selection of the most important documents from our archives. Dr Iwona Korga, the managing director, served as a guide, presenting a condensed history of our organization. Dr Magda Kapuścińska, the Institute’s president, welcomed the distinguished guest on behalf of the Board of Directors and introduced other members. Volunteers and friends of the Institute took part in the meeting. Mr. Duda was accompanied by several staff members of his Office, and by ministers Adam Kwiatkowski, Krzysztof Szczerski and Pawel Soloch. Dr Kapuścińska offered him a plaque with the image of Marshal Jozef Pilsudski, while the Institute received a painting of the Belvedere, the presidential palace in Warsaw. We feel greatly honored by this visit. Thank you, Mr. President.
