Orders and Distinctions for Former Auschwitz Concentration Camp Prisoners
President Aleksander Kwasniewski decorated former Auschwitz concentration camp prisoners and members of the Auschwitz Preservation Association.
Crosses of the Order of Poland Reborn were received by Association vice-president Antoni Baranski, Wojciech Drewniak, and Stanislaw Fraczysty, a Home Army Tatra Mountain courier and Auschwitz prisoner. Orders were avoided for services in preserving the knowledge about the camp. Antoni Baranski declared that, as long as possible, the Association will do its duty to protect the memory of historical truth about the camp and the memory of those who shall remain for eternity on the other side of the fence.
