By David at 09/05/2009 - 06:31

The Prime Minister went to Gdansk (Poland), Tuesday, 1 September, to attend ceremonies marking the 70th anniversary of the invasion of Poland that marked the beginning of the Second World War in 1939.
 
70 years ago, on 1 September 1939 under the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact signed a few days earlier, the German battleship Schleswig-Holstein opened fire against the base of the Polish Westerplatte peninsula, near Gdansk.
 
In this historic location at the foot of a monument dedicated to the 180 Polish defenders of Westerplatte, which gathered a score of government leaders including Italian Silvio Berlusconi, the Ukraine's Yulia Tymoshenko, Swedish Fredrik Reinfeldt, and, of course, representatives of the belligerents of the period: German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
 
In a speech to mark solemnity, François Fillon paid tribute "moved to the Polish people and its fighters": "We will not forget the light that their actions were planned in a time of darkness," he said.
"Marked by the memory of war and suffering, [Poland] should be, with our support and friendship, a place of invention of the future", provided, finally, François Fillon.
