The European Parliament has named the courtyard of its main building after Bronis³aw Geremek, the former Polish foreign minister and Eurodeputy who died in a car crash last year. A commemorative plaque was unveiled April 21 by the President of the European Parliament, Hans-Gert Pöttering.

“We will remember Geremek as a freedom fighter, democrat and a great European, one of the true architects of today’s European Union,” Pöttering said. “Today, he occupies a place of honor at the very center of European democracy, in our European Parliament.”

The courtyard is now called Bronis³aw Geremek Agora. The plaque features Geremek’s picture and his short biography in Polish, English and French.

Geremek, Polish foreign minister in 1997-2000 and Eurodeputy 2004-2008, was killed in a car accident in July last year.
