Honour and Glory to the Heroes!
On the initiative of the first Head of the Antoni Macierewicz of MCS, a Memorial Exhibition Room was established in 2007. In the building at Wojciecha Oczki and Tytusa Chałubińskiego streets there used to be the seat of the Main Board of the Polish Army Information (GZI WP). The Military Information, as it was called, was created in 1944 in the Soviet Union and organised to reflect “Smiersz" — the soviet counterintelligence bodies. It also took over their personnel and criminal methods of operation. Along with the Ministry of Public Security, it took active part in combating Polish post-war underground structures struggling for independence and was a tool of communist oppression in Poland.
