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.
