Dni Ateizmu 2017Days of Atheism 2017

31 mars au 2 avril 2017

The “Days of Atheism” are organized each spring by our Polish friends of the Kazimierz Lyszczynski Foundation to commemorate the death of that great atheist Kazimierz Lyszczynski and to affirm freedom of conscience. The event is a celebration of atheism which, each year, attracts increasing numbers of atheists from Poland and from around the world. It includes the Atheist March and the historical reenactment of the execution of Lyszczynski, as well as lectures, panel discussions, exhibitions and film screenings.
