The issue of opening access to archives: of freemasonry vs other
Only allowing access to the archives of freemasonry could provide a
documented view on the past and present political situation. The current focus on secret
police archives in Poland creates conditions for falsifying history and
reality. Revealing of information contained in these archives should be
conditioned by accepting their secondary nature and that they are partial. We must be critical
of sanctifying currently accessible archives and manipulating them
especially by the media.
Sopot, January 8, 2007
Answering a question from a female student [UAM in Poznan], whether
opening up of secret police archives will provide knowledge about current
history, prof. Janusz Pajewski answered that only opening of masonic archives
would allow this (Statement made by NN during conversation with
M. Urban, before 2002).
Rev. prof. Jan Stepien: Only the Prime Minister any maybe some
ministers know who governs Poland (Relacja Mariusza Urbana
z rozmowy z ks. Janem Stepniem, [Mariusz Urban's account
of conversation with rev. Jan Stepien], before 1989).
