Warsaw In Mourning Warsaw In Mourning

Warsaw authorities have announced three days of mourning beginning on Monday, January 15th following the murder of Gdańsk Mayor Paweł Adamowicz. Adamowicz, whose 20-year tenure as Mayor coincided with the city’s dynamic development, was a hugely popular figure and well-known for his liberal views. Donald Tusk, the acting President of the EU Council, and himself a native of Gdańsk, paid tribute to Adamowicz calling him “a man of solidarity and freedom.”

Adamowicz was stabbed to death on stage during the finale of Poland’s best-loved charity fundraiser, with his murder sending shockwaves across the country and adding to the toxic political climate.
