Memorial Tour 2022 Update
While the prospects are improving with increasing vaccination and declining COVID numbers, we do not know when enough normality will be restored for safe travel and visiting Poland. To be able to make a timely decision about the trip, we have set the following deadline:
If by the end of September 2021 the safety outlook is positive and certain, we will confirm and start organizing the trip for the late Spring of 2022. Otherwise, we will set another deadline to consider whether the trip would be possible for later in 2022.
