Polish official impressed with National Military History Center


AUBURN, Ind. (WANE)- The National Military History Center got a very important visitor Tuesday.

Robert Rusiecki, the Chicago-based deputy consul general for the Republic of Poland, stopped in to visit the museum on the recommendation of another Polish official.

The museum is filled with artifacts from World War II, which Rusiecki said is still a very important chapter in history for the people of Poland.

“There isn’t a single family in Poland that hasn’t lost a son or a brother or husband during the war,” said Rusiecki. “I thought [the museum] was going to be a very interesting place, but I underestimated that. It’s wonderful, and it’s so big and so interesting that you can spend days here.”

Rusiecki took a lot of pictures and said he will post them on the Polish Consulate’s website in the hopes that more Polish people will come to Auburn to check out the museum.
