Sławomir Sikora is the protagonist of one of the most famous criminal events in which practically all of Poland lived years ago. His story was publicized primarily by the cult film "The Debt" directed by Krzysztof Krauze. Recently, you could also follow Sławomir Sikora's fate in the movie "My Debt" on cinema screens.
Pardoned by the President of the Republic of Poland, Aleksander Kwasniewski, after serving 10 out of 25 years of his sentence for the murder of his persecutor, he decided to radically change the parameters of his life. He converted to Catholicism. He gave up business and began lively charity work for people imprisoned in Polish prisons. In numerous media appearances in the press, radio, television and the Internet, he became an ardent spokesman for changes in the Polish penitentiary system. He has also published two books in which he describes his history before, and mainly during, his sentence. He paints a gloomy picture of Polish prisons. He indicates its main drawbacks.
There is a clear trait in his every action. Sławomir Sikora is thirsty for freedom for himself and for others he wants to help. Freedom is the main engine of his conduct. He sees the fundamental feature of humanity in the love of freedom. Captivity is the end, death, the non-existence of every human being.
The cruise is a response to the terrifying atmosphere that has swept virtually the whole world. Millions of people lose their sense of security. The economic and food crisis is raging with increasing force and, above all, the war in Ukraine is terrifying. People lost in this global terror may forget what is most important: the need to fight for freedom and peace. This cruise is to be a strong reminder of the need to fight for these values that are most important to all of us. And passing on the hope that things can get better and that fear is not the best solution.
