As a part of the official celebrations of the 70th anniversary of National Police Day, the Police Museum in Salah El-Din Citadel, Cairo is organizing a number of significant cultural activities and shows in cooperation with the Department of Archaeological Awareness and Community Communication of the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities.
The head of the Police Museum Moamen Osman announced the department’s plan to celebrate its 70th anniversary this year.
Osman, in the opening speech, said that the department will hold workshops to help children know the police’s dedicated efforts in the liberation of their land and their significant role in ending the British occupation.
“The department and museum also take this occasion as momentum in organizing special events for students from 8 to 14 years of age to participate in cultural activities, such as “sculpting and pottery, painting classes, and music classes that focus on the topic of national sacrifices,” Osman noted.
“Through a partnership with the Ministry of Tourism, a theatre performance will be presented during the cultural evening,” the head of the Police Museum revealed.
“Later on this day, we will hand out appreciation certificates to martyrs’ families in recognition of the brave Egyptian policemen and their contributions in the evacuation of foreign forces.”
“The ceremony entitled “The memories of the battle of Ismailia in 1952″ will be held to honor those who have made tremendous sacrifices for the country,” the manager of the Police Museum Abdel Basit Mahmoud said.
It’s worth mentioning that National Police Day commemoration is a remembrance for 50 police officers killed and more wounded when they refused British demands to hand over weapons and evacuate the Ismaïlia Police Station on 25 January 1952.
