The monument of Wroclaw's Metropolit Cardinal Bolewslaw Kominek was unveiled at the church square (toward Tumski Bridge) on 2nd of December 2005. This special event was to commemorate the sending of the letter from the Polish Bishops to the Bishops of Germany on 18th November 1965. This letter, called the Manifesto for Reconciliation, started the political repressions within the Polish Catholic Church by the communist government who considered this act of Bishops as a betrayal.

A sentence of this letter, written also on the monument, is a base for reconciliation between the Polish and German nations: "We forgive and ask to be forgiven".
