Ladies and Gentlemen,

History and Culture Foundation has been founded in 2004 and has since then acted actively to facilitate the access to historical, military, cultural and educational knowledge. Foundation’s aims include: popularization of the literature on these subjects, assistiance in cultural and educational undertakings, especially ones conecerning historical education and promotion of patriotic values.

Since the begining, the Foundation has been inspiring, organizing and conducting non-profit activities conected with history; supporting actions of special interest groups, cultural and educational ventrues (for example it prepares and obtains funds for KLIO Prize), issuing publication about history and Polish culture, and also military, organizing meeting and competitions about these topics.

One importat element of our acitivies is the organization of the History Book Fair (Targi Książki Historycznej) − promotional and informational event organized annually, which is very popular amongs people interested in history. The Foundation is the executive branch of the Porozumienie Wydawców Książek Historycznych (Association of History Books’ Publishers). In order to achieve its goals, Foundation cooperates also with other instututions and organizations, such as Polish Army Museum, the Council for the Protection of Struggle and Martydom Sites or Katyń Museum.

In the last few years, we have noted the increasing necessity of work for children and teenagers. We satisfy this need through the organization of History School League, Musem Lessons and other attractions during Historical Book Fair. For the first time, in 2014 we organized the Festival of Children and YA Books “Let’s Read” (Festiwal Książki dla Dzieci i Młodzieży „Czytajmy”) in The Kubicki Arcades Museum, part of the Royal Castle in Warsaw. Our initiative was warmly welcomed by the publishing society and was popular; therefore we are planning next editions.

Thank you for your attention. Please do not hesitate to contact us and establish cooperation.

Warm regards
Waldemar Michalski
