The Grand Duchy of Lithuania Institute (Kaunas, Lithuania) as well as writer and poet Tomas Venclova won the fifteenth Jerzy Giedroyc Award. The famous Polish newspaper “Rzeczpospolita” grants the award annually to individuals and institutions who work to strengthen the friendly relations between Poland and the states of Central and Eastern Europe. This time the jury has departed from the tradition to give the award to Poles and noted a person and an institution from Lithuania.
The award ceremony was held in Warsaw on 1 December.
