A Debt of Dishonour Film Premiere at the Warsaw Rising Museum. The Warsaw Rising Museum organised 2 Premieres in fact, at 11:30 am in English language followed by lunch and the second showing in the evening at 6 pm in Polish.

The 11:30 am Premiere was followed by our visit to Powazki Cemetery where we placed flowers on General Stanislaw Sosabowski's grave. Colonel Mike Russell (Aldershot) and Colonel Bogdan Kielbasa (MON) jointly attended our visit to Powazki Cemetery.
Both, the morning and evening Premieres followed with a valuable discussion on the subject of Polish involvement in Arnhem 1944 and allowed for a full audience participation. The above event was fully promoted by Warsaw Rising Museum (their website and mailing list) with special thanks to ever hard working Miss Ewelina Bajak.
The Polish Heritage Society UK also delivered to Warsaw several archive copies of the A Debt of Dishonour film in DVD format.
