By far too often, acts of hatred and fanaticism replace the dialogue, openness and tolerance that Paweł represented. He will remain in our memory as a person who helps others and as a trustworthy, well-liked and respected politician. We will also remember him as an efficient city manager who restored the splendor of Gdańsk and as a young face of Gdańsk’s solidarity. Such people are exceptional and their loss is even stronger resented.
Freedom, equality, solidarity and openness - these were his values. Paweł Adamowicz has repeatedly said "everything for the good of Gdańsk", because Gdańsk was his love. His loss caused emptiness in the lives of everyone who knew him.
By joining in grief and pain after Paweł Adamowicz's death, we would like to express our deepest sympathy, sorrow and our solidarity to the hands of the Family, Friends and inhabitants of Gdańsk.
