Here is the letter detail
“Letter of Intent”
In my capacity as mayor of the district of the city of Oświęcim I am addressing you as the mayor of the city of Chrian with a proposal for entering into a partnership between our cities. It would be our utmost pleasure and we would greatly appreciate if you agreed to involve in this enterprise.
My request is followed by the fact that both Oświęcim and Chrian has been gravely affected by the World War II. In the area that belongs to the city of Oświęcim, namely in Brzezinka, a Nazi Concentration Camp has been built. Its purpose was to repress and annihilate, initially only the Jewish nation, and in consequence other nations of Europe as well.
What is more, as far as I know the WWII has also taken its toll on the city of Chiran, as the Chrian Peace Museum for Kamikaze Pilots well commemorates the tragic events of that times.
During the war many lives have been taken and keeping the memory of those lost alive is a crucial and vital element of our lives. The Nazi Concentration Camp is in itself an example of remembrance, and this year has been the 70th Anniversary of its liberation.
Learning from our own mistakes, but not only our own, should be the base of human attitude nowadays. Owing to knowledge and experience of other countries allows us to look at the world from a different perspective. We learn to care not only for ourselves, but also for the well-being of others, for their basic needs of accommodation, alimentation and affection. Those elements can only be available in the peaceful and loving society. That is exactly my intention, which I wish to achieve through collaboration with the community of the city of Chiran. I believe that the potential cooperation and mutual exchange of experiences will be beneficial to both sides; in the respect of gaining new knowledge and exploring our diverse yet beautiful and valuable cultures. This in turn will prevent unnecessary international conflicts in the future.
I would be grateful if you looked into this proposal and consider entering into a partnership between our cities, as I am deeply convinced that it might provide abundance of benefits to both parties.
