Dr Olga Linkiewicz of the Institute of History of the Polish Academy of Sciences received the Kazimierz Moczarski City of Warsaw History Award for her book “Locality and Nationalism. Rural communities in Eastern Galicia in the interwar period”, published with the support of the Lanckoronski Foundation (see: News – New Publications 2018).
The Kazimierz Moczarski City of Warsaw History Award, established in December 2018 by the Warsaw City Council, is a continuation of the award created in 2009 for the best book on the history of Poland. The project is coordinated by the History Meeting House – the Cultural Institution of the City of Warsaw, as well as by the Kazimierz and Zofia Moczarski Foundation. The award promotes the most important publications and best authors. It is a tribute to the memory of Kazimierz Moczarski, a journalist, lawyer and Home Army soldier who was imprisoned after the war on charges of anti-communist activity. Moczarski wrote the well-known “Rozmowy z katem” (“Conversations with an executioner”), which was translated into many languages.
