Norman Davies in the Wanda Siemaszkowa Theatre in Rzeszów
In Rzeszów took place a meeting with a great English historian Norman Davies. This event was organized in the Wanda Siemaszkowa Theatre by Znak publishing house and  Nova bookstore and it gathered a lot of Davies’ readers and fans. Norman Davies promoted his new book Europe at War 1939-1945. No Simply Victory. His  thesis and a deep insight in the problems of war, poverty and misconceptions or even misrepresentation of the historic truth were a clear proof that Davies appreciates the objectiveness and highligted the fact that he fights with  so called “national local patriotism’.  The listeners had a chance to hear a lot of strong but  at the same time required words. Moreover, he talked about Polish general Sikorski and his mysterious death. Davies claimed that Sikorski’s death was an accident, not a murder as many Poles still think. Also, he was asked why the British did nothing about Sikorski’s death at that time. The historian explained that the situation was mainly caused by the diplomatic disarray and Churchill’s good will.  The meeting was held by a great theorists and experts on the Culture of the Sub Carpathian Region, such as Professor Waclaw Wierzbieniec from Rzeszów University.
