Defence of Poles in Lithuania by Polish intellectuals

Discrimination of Poles in Lithuania is one of the important subjects discussed in Poland. Yesterday in “Rzeczpospolita” which is one of the most opinion – forming newspapers, an open letter defending Poles in Lithuania signed by 300 intellectuals, mainly professors of Polish Universities as well as people of arts was published.

This letter is a response to the letter of another 100 intellectuals who established The Forum of Dialogue and Co-operation with Lithuania and appealed to intensify co-operation between both countries. In today’s edition of “Kurier” we present both letters and names of signatories.
