Polish scientists in Brussels want the presence of our compatriots in Belgium to be associated not only with gainful work, but also with cultural exchanges or scientific cooperation. Thursday was a Polish Day at one of the Brussels universities.
A conference devoted to common history was organized at the Free University of Brussels (ULB). Jeremy Lambert from the Polish Institute in Brussels told PAP that the idea of Polish Day was born in a scientific community and appealed to the Institute.
"We became involved. Poles in Brussels are not a new phenomenon, this emigration is not only economic, it is also intellectual and dates back to the beginnings of Belgian independence, the 1830s. Gen. Jan Skrzynecki commander in chief of the Belgian army, Joachim Lelewel lived here too" - he said.
