Death of Professor Andrzej Nieuwazny
We were shocked to learn this weekend of the death of Professor Andrzej Nieuwazny, of the University of Torun in Poland, aged 55. He was one of the best European historians of the Napoleonic period and had published, in Poland, France, and in the English-language world, a great number of books and articles. Being polyglot, he frequently took part in conferences in France – including those organised by the Fondation – and elsewhere, and he was invited on several occasions to teach in French universities. He received the Fondation Napoléon Prize for a work in a language other than French in 2001 for his book «My z Napoleonem». We offer our sincere condolences to his wife and children.
