Janusz Krupski, minister from the Office for War Veterans and Victims of Oppression in Poland, and Jan Stanislaw Ciechanowski, adviser to the minister, visited the Hoover Institution on August 27, 2007. Hoover staff members Maciej Siekierski and Zbigniew Stanczyk shared with them some of the historical materials relating to Poland held by the library and archives.

Among Hoover's many notable holdings concerning Poland are the Wladyslaw Anders Collection, the records of the Polish Embassy in the Soviet Union, and the records of the Polish Ministry of Information and Documentation. These collections contain the fullest available documentation (including more than 30,000 original depositions by survivors) on the tragic fate of hundreds of thousands of Polish citizens in the Soviet Union: prisoners of war, labor camp inmates, and deportees.
