Many people think they know which values Captain Witold Pilecki stood for. After a while of consideration, however, they admit that they didn’t read the “Witold’s Report”. They didn’t get to his words, so they don’t understand them – says Małgorzata Kupiszewska, the plenipotentiary of the GDZIE Foundation, the coordinator of the project “Rotmistrz Pilecki Bohater Niezwyciężony” [“Captain Pilecki, The Invinsible Hero”]. The organizers of the projects want the Polish people to come to know the Captain’s history, his extraordinary deeds, and to adopt the values that Witold held dear for his entire life: courage, industriousness, patriotism, comradeship, and then pass them on, to others. That would be the execution of the Captain’s will, who, as his last, farewell adage, has chosen a quote from Thomas à Kempis’ “The Imitation of Christ”: I tried to live my life in such a way so that in my hour of death I would rather rejoice than fear – emphasizes the project’s coordinator, writer, and journalist, in her talk with Krzysztof Sitko.
