Official visit of MIA Archive to Poland
On March 21-25, 2015 on the invitation of the Institute of National Remembrance - Commission for the Prosecution of Crimes against the Polish Nation, a
delegation from MIA Archive of Georgia paid an official visit to Warsaw, Poland. The Georgian delegation consisted of the following representatives: Mr.
Omar Tushurashvili, Director of MIA Archive and Mr. Vladimer Luarsabishvili, archivist and analyst of MIA Archive. The major goal of the visit was to hold a
meeting of working groups within the frames of Polish-Georgian project. The working group members discussed some scientific and technical issues to publish
a monograph “Soviet Repression of Polish People in Georgia during the Great Terror (1937-1938)”. At the meetings the working group members classified and
analyzed those meeting protocols of NKVD Troika which reflect Soviet repression of Polish people in the Georgian SSR. Besides, a scientific article “A Brief
History of the Great Terror in Georgia” produced by MIA Archive was revised.
Joint Polish-Georgian monograph is to be published in Warsaw, in autumn of the current year by the Institute of National Remembrance of Poland. The
Institute plans to publish Georgian-English version of the edition in 2016.
