An exhibition, entitled 'Lech Kaczynski. A man of solidarity,' telling the story of the late president and his engagement in the trade union, was opened on Monday at the yard of the Culture Ministry in Warsaw.

Ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party leader and brother of Lech Kaczynski, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, speaking at the opening of the exhibition, said that his brother was a man of 'Solidarity' in a double sense, someone who worked in Solidarity, but also someone for whom the values of building Polish identity and Polish strength were important.

"I am very grateful for this initiative, which recalls the long political path of my blessed brother, albeit in his short life," he added.

In Kaczynski's view, his brother was someone who cherished the values that built Polish identity: "Polish strength, the strength that allows us to survive, and I hope that in the future it will allow us to build a really strong Polish state."

He said the exhibition was "a reminder of someone who is really worth remembering, as a Pole, a patriot, but above all, as a man of 'Solidarity.'"
