Meet the Ambassador: A historian and a history maker

Polish Ambassador Jacek Chodorowicz has been heavily involved in the planning of events to mark the 25th anniversary of the renewal of diplomatic ties between Israel and Poland. In fact he has been so busy that our interview has been deferred again and again. It finally took place in his office in Tel Aviv on June 5 – an auspicious date in that according to the Gregorian calendar, it was the 48th anniversary of the beginning of the Six Day War, as a result of which Poland and all Soviet Bloc countries with the exception of Romania severed diplomatic ties with Israel.

Now, 48 years later, Chodorowicz is talking about how much Poland wants to strengthen those ties on all levels – political, cultural, economic, scientific and hi-tech cooperation, two-way tourism, academic cooperation and exchanges and more.
