Rotamaster Witold Pilecki’s portrait at Wrocław’s Main Square – May 26, 2008

On May 26, 2008 at 1 PM – the facade of BZWBK Bank in the Wrocław’s Main Square was covered by a grand size portrait of Rotamaster Witold Pilecki. Apart from the commemorative meaning, the poster is an advertisement for the website www.pilecki.ipn.gov.pl, which was made in the 60th anniversary of the murder of the “Volunteer to Auschwitz”.
The idea for the grand poster (with dimensions: 10x20 meters) was promoted by the Lower Silesian Historic Initiative.
Witold Pilecki’s portrait will be on display until July 14, 2008.
