WARSAW—Irena Krzyżanowska-Sendler, one of Poland’s greatest long-unsung heroines of World War II, died last Monday morning (May 12th) at a Warsaw hospital at the age of 98. A social worker instrumental in saving some 2,500 Jewish babies and youngsters from the Holocaust, she was hospitalized in April with pneumonia, never to return to the Catholic nursing home where she had lived for the past four years.

Zlikwidowano bibliotekę Instytutu Polskiego w Paryżu. Jej
zbiory w większości trafią do biblioteki paryskiego uniwersytetu - Sorbony.

Polonii co do dalszych losów okołodziesięciotysięcznego księgozbioru.
Pogłoski o planach zamknięcia tej zasłużonej dla polskiej kultury placówki krążyły co najmniej od połowy kwietnia. W tym czasie na stronach internetowych Polskiego Stowarzyszenia Autorów, Dziennikarzy i Tłumaczy w Europie APAJTE trwała debata na temat jej przyszłości. Polskie Ministerstwo Spraw Zagranicznych informowało jedynie o reorganizacji. Dyrektor Instytutu Beata Podgórska zaprzeczyła, jakoby likwidacja biblioteki była utrzymywana w ścisłej tajemnicy. - Po prostu nie było jeszcze decyzji.
