The protagonist of the November instalment of the "Faces of Opole" meeting will be Roman Horoszkiewicz, a distinguished cultural activist from Opole Silesia.
The figure, who will be recalled during the event by the journalist Wiktor Krzewicki and Professor Krzysztof Rozpondek, is of particular interest to our Museum due to the Second World War period. At that time, in September 1939, Roman Horoszkiewicz was taken into captivity by the Germans, and detained, first in Oflag XII A Hadamar and then in Oflag II D Gross Born. His résumé (1892-1962), however, contains more threads that attract attention - after all, he was a soldier of three wars, a Silesian insurgent, a museum worker, a history teacher and a publicist. There is certainly no shortage of topics to discuss.
To the meeting entitled Roman Horoszkiewicz. Sketch for a portrait, which will take place on 24 November at 5 p.m. at the Opole seat of the Museum, you are invited by the President of the Association of Friends of the CMJW, Dr. Iwona Konopnicka, and the Director of the Museum, Dr. Violetta Rezler-Wasielewska.
