Jan Matejko, Potęga Rzeczypospolitej u zenitu. Złota wolność. Elekcja

The aim of the Foundation is to restore the values of the civil society rooted in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. We hope that together we will manage to revive the civic space severely compromised by the partitions of Poland.

These excerpts from a lecture given by Prof. Andrzej S. Kaminski — the Founder of the Foundation — as part of the seminar “Memory – Identity – Responsibility. The Heritage of the Commonwealth” of 11-12 September 2006 in Warsaw, guide the activities of our Foundation:

"... In a system without civic-mindedness, where citizens have no sovereign power, the concept of “they” arises. “They” do something, everything happens “because of them”. Conversely, in a civil society, whatever happens is “ours”, “because of us”, and it is “us” who are proud or ashamed.

Civil societies have never been created other than through the struggle of local communities with the authorities, because no power allows real, though obviously controlled, local governments to develop.

It is quite right to promise things to people when one needs them. Noble citizenship was thus created, too — quid pro quo. But it was more than just that — a sense of what I call the civic space. It is a cry to defend freedom, a cry to defend the motherland. This cry could only reach an inhabitant of the civic space. But civic space was severely compromised during the time of the partitions and has never returned to its former vitality”.

Founder of the Foundation — Prof. Andrzej S. Kamiński

Professor Andrzej S. Kaminski, a graduate of the Faculty of History at the Jagiellonian University, in 1970-1982 a professor at Columbia University in New York, he has been a professor of history at Georgetown University in Washington since 1982. Professor Kaminski specializes in the history of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, East-Central Europe and Russia in the 16th-18th centuries. He completed seminars at Stanford University and Oxford University, and was a guest lecturer at the University of California at Berkeley, Fordham University, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, University of Pittsburgh and University of Warsaw. He has been a foreign member of the Polish Academy of Sciences since 1997.

At the beginning of the 1980s, he was delivering public lectures on the history of Poland for the Polish intelligentsia newly arrived in the US, first at Columbia University, and subsequently at the Józef Piłsudski Institute in New York. Professor`s best-known activity for the benefit of Poland and, more broadly, the post-Soviet space, was his activity in the “East Central European Scholarship Program”.

After 1989, he joined the process of transformation in Poland and the mission of educating its youth. Since 2004, he has been lecturing at the Summer School at the Centre for East European Studies at the University of Warsaw, where students from post-communist countries are educated.

Since 2006, the Professor has been in charge of the project “Recovering Forgotten History. The Image of East-Central Europe in English-Language Academic Text Books”, which he initiated.

In recognition of his achievements, on 3 March 2008, Professor Kaminski was awarded the Commander`s Cross of the Order of Polonia Restituta by President Lech Kaczynski.
