The twentieth Night of Museums in Poland and the fifth at the Polish Armenian Culture and Heritage Foundation is already behind us. Our Armenian offer turned out to be interesting again and attracted a lot of visitors of all ages. We had something nice for everyone. Starting with one and a half-two hour walks with Warsaw guide Eliza Korzeniewska in the footsteps of Polish Armenians in the Old Town, through a tour of the Treasury of Polish Armenians and the temporary exhibition “Suitcase of memories – Zachariasz Gregorowicz (1884-1961)”, to short films of the POLONIKA Institute about the Armenian cathedral in Lviv – a cartoon for children and a documentary story for adults. We opened the Foundation’s doors at 3 p.m. and until 23 we were constantly giving tours. Each of the seven volunteers had their hands full: Hania, Monika, Marina, Krysia, Danek, Armen and Wojtek. Our little bookstore was open, and those who were thirsty were given water, and everyone received a cookie for making an entry in the commemorative book. We heard that our place was not only interesting, but also nice. And how many interesting people we had apleasure to meet: Armenians, descendants of Polish Armenians, historians, our neighbors from Świętojerska and the surrounding area, people from the borderlands, including those from the West! One of the visitors, Tatevek Shekoyan, spontaneously sang beautiful Armenian songs – Komitas and folk songs – several times.
