Polish Ambassador To Visit Bush Museum
On Friday, December 6, Ambassador Grudzinski will be delivering a lecture entitled "U.S./Polish Relations in the Post 9/11 World" to an audience at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum's Orientation Theater at 12:00 p.m.
A lifelong scholar and political activist, Ambassador Grudzinski earned advanced degrees in history from the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, where he also taught for 20 years. He is an expert in European-American relations and policy.
During the 1980's, Ambassador Grudzinski became heavily involved in the Polish Solidarity Movement, which significantly contributed to the demise of the country's communist government and the break-up of the Warsaw Pact.
Ambassador Grudzinski has been deeply involved in the Polish government over the last 20 years. He previously served as his government's Deputy Minister of National Defense and Undersecretary of State in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs before being appointed as Ambassador of Poland to the United States on September 5, 2000.
Ambassador Grudzinski is the latest in a string of high-ranking officials to visit the Library and Museum in order to share their perspectives on the state of government, both foreign and domestic. Previous dignitaries to have appeared at the complex include Andrew Card, Condoleeza Rice and Tony Blair.
The lecture is free but reservations are required. Please contact Amanda Urrutia at 979-260-9552 ext. 221 to reserve your space today.
