He dreamed of a strong Poland in a strong Europe. Jerzy Rencki 1926-2017
Few Poles managed to make it right to the top of European institutions. One of them that did was Jerzy Rencki – a veteran of the Warsaw Uprising, a former Oflag prisoner and the Honorary Director-General of the European Commission in the 1990s. He died in Paris on March 5 at the age of 91. His remarkable life reads like a blockbuster film script.
