Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has spoken in praise of patriotism, saying that it helps his nation “build our modern identity.”
“Patriotism is the fruit of the memory tree above all. And this tree is very much needed,” Prime Minister Morawiecki told delegates at the Guardian of Memory gala hosted at Royal Castle in Warsaw on Tuesday by Polish newspaper Do Rzeczy.
Evoking the importance of patriotism, history, and memory, he said: “Thank you to all who water this tree, care for it, because only on this foundation, we can build – or rebuild – the memory of our great history and build our modern identity.”
“Thanks to these values, we will look more confidently at the future and achieve those goals that we assume,” the premier added.
President Andrzej Duda, who could not be there in person, sent a message to the gala, which awards public figures, institutions, and organisations that promote the memory of Polish history.
