Since May 2016, a new work of urban in Estoril, Portugal, pays tribute to Jan Karski (1914 - 2000) and his friends Jerzy Jan Lerski (1917 - 1992) and Jan Nowak-Jeziorański (1914 - 2005). The three famous Polish intellectuals actively participated in the resistance against the German occupation, working underground to fuel the Polish government in exile and the allies with valuable information for the development of the war against the Nazis.
In the commemorative plaque of the sculpture, we can read: «It is thanks to these men and the other anonymous heroes that the terror of the Second World War was stopped at an earlier moment. Their courage and wisdom contributed to the foundation of the transatlantic system. Seventy years later, the Atlanticism remains the key factor to peace and stability of the European nations.»
Resulting from a collaboration of the Polish Embassy in Portugal with the Mayor of Cascais, and sponsored by the Spitzman Jordan Family, this new piece of urban art is placed in the gardens of the Casino Estoril.
Andrew Jordan was distinguished with the highest honour of the city of Rio de Janeiro.
The Medal of Merit Pedro Ernesto is the main tribute that Rio de Janeiro pays to those who most stands out in Brazilian society or at an international level.
The award was named in recognition of the work of the doctor and politician Pedro Ernesto, prefect in the period between 1931 and 1936 and a great defender of social policies.
In August 1942, his death was acknowledge in the pages of Time Magazine and Pedro Ernesto was portrayed as «the most beloved man in Brazil».
Forbes magazine (Portugal) devotes the cover and ten pages of its January 2017 edition to André Jordan, a work of journalist Pedro Garcia with photos of Victor Machado.
The André Jordan Group brought back the President of the Republic Cup, for the first time played at the Belas Clube de Campo. It had become a regular event between 2000 and 2005, organized in Vilamoura with the high sponsorship of President Jorge Sampaio. The actual President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, was present at Belas Clube de Campo: «We are here especially to honour André Jordan, who is a pioneer who understood what tourism was in Portugal sooner than the common mortal. We are here to thank you, to greet you for your persistence, your vision and your youth.»
More than a sports competition, the President of the Republic Cup aims to promote the image of Portugal as a travel destination and its best golf courses, while raising funds for private social solidarity institutions. In 2017 will benefit the Center for Education for the Citizen with Disabilities, based in Mira Sintra, which has 2500 users and more than two hundred employees.
The event was played by 74 invited players of different nationalities and was won by the pair composed by Ernâni Magalhães and Soren Pedersen. The Afonso Patrício Gouveia Cup, for the best lady in the competition, was awarded to Sharon Henderson.
Three highlights from the projects developed by André Jordan Group in Portugal: BELAS CLUB DE CAMPO (now under a new expansion phase) and two other big developments already sold to international investors: QUINTA DO LAGO and VILAMOURA XXI.
