Adam Borowski

In memory of Damian Soból

I am saddened by the death of the World Central Kitchen volunteers. Damian Soból was one of them. He was a Polish volunteer who died in IDF Strike. I didn’t know him personally, of course, but he seemed like a courageous and admirable individual who devoted his life to helping others. A cliche, you might say, but cliches exist for a reason. Sometimes, they convey all that needs conveying.

While I understand such tragic things can happen in the war, I sincerely hope they aren’t going to become the norm, as that would have catastrophic consequences on several levels. Polish-Israeli relations have flourished for a while now and such tragic turns of events only give ammunition to enemy regimes that seek to portray Israel in a terrible light. Hamas started this war and now more and more people are drawn into it.

Indeed, even here in Warsaw, a local priest told me he had been personally affected by the October 7 massacre. The consequences of Hamas attack are global. We’re yet to see how serious these consequences are actually going to be.

I salute the dead volunteers for their bravery and their wish to make this wicked world a better place. May they rest in peace knowing they made a difference and the world knows their names.
