Poland’s National Independence Day on November 11 is one of the most important dates in the calendar of every Pole. Being so far away from our country we especially cherish such meaningful occasions not only to celebrate, but most importantly, to deliver a valuable history lesson.
This week, in a solemn atmosphere, we talked about the value of independence and the great Poles who fought for the freedom of their homeland. We listened to the national anthem and we proudly decorated our hearts with white and red cotillions. The traditional St. Martin’s croissants (Rogale Świętomarcińskie), colorful decorations, beautifully dressed students and wonderfully sung patriotic songs added an unusual character to this event.
The project is financed by the Chancellery of the Prime Minister as part of a public task concerning aid to the Polish community and Poles abroad.
