Comment on the article Poland sets out to reclaim Marie Curie’s legacy, Maria Wilczek in The Times, 12 May 2021.
Polish political functionary talking about ‘false narrative’? He is merely repeating the comment I wrote under another Times article,
However, he is trying to alter the meaning and point finger at someone else.
“I find the text being of poor quality, merely a retelling of an official story. The problem is that Poland is an epicentre of falsifications of both recent European history and contemporary politics.”
These words are equally applicable here.
By the way, I applied to a Polish university for an official transcript of my undergraduate grades twice. I paid the fee. The functionaries refused to issue the document I asked for. The first time they pretended they didn’t know how it should look like. On the second attempt, they sent few pages which do not qualify as official transcript. The first page was stamped with university seal, but the rest were not. This was done on purpose, of course. I was expelled from Polish state institution for political reasons in 2015. I am a physicist, like Marie Curie.
