Lemkin - Instytut Pileckiego
The result of the project, but also of the independent activities of the Pilecki Institute, are various publications and initiatives. Some of them are listed below.
The Lemkin Collection – the first-ever collection of books relating to Rafał Lemkin and genocide studies. It was donated to the Warsaw University Library by the Pilecki Institute (at the time the Witold Pilecki Center for Totalitarian Studies). The set – unique in Poland and including both classic and the most recent publications on the subject – comprises more than 160 titles from all over the world, carefully selected in consultation with numerous acclaimed specialists and experts.
