Janusz #Korczak, 🇵🇱 children's author, doctor, educator and #childrensrights pioneer, was born #OTD in 1878.

He believed that each child is his own person, worthy of love and respect, and this belief was at the heart of his life and work.

In 1942, after his heroic efforts to save 200 Jewish orphans failed, he boarded the train with them to Treblinka. "How could I leave my children", he said to those who offered to rescue him.

🇵🇱 resistance-fighter, courier and diplomat Jan #Karski passed away #OTD in 2000.

In 1943, Karski met with 🇺🇸 Pres. Roosevelt and shared his first-hand accounts of the Holocaust, becoming the first to directly report to the U.S. gov't on the N**i atrocities.

To mark the anniversary of his passing, our Embassy laid a wreath at his grave in D.C.'s Mt. Olivet Cemetery today.

Great to see the local Polonia in Wheeling, WV celebrate its 11th Polish Heritage Day on June 27th with the Polish American Patriots Club, a civic group established in 1919! 🇵🇱🇺🇸

The festival was held on the grounds of the Our Lady of Grace Grotto, which is home to Wheeling’s Polish American War Memorial. The Memorial was dedicated in 1949 to honor local residents who served in World War II and commemorates those residents who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Pictured below are Colonel Steve Olejasz, VP of the Friends of Kosciuszko at West Point and friend of the Embassy, and Thaddeus “Ed” Gorczyca, President of the Polish American Patriots Club in Wheeling, WV. Hope everyone enjoyed the fantastic #Polish food and music! 😋

Por. pil. Leon Waszak rozpoczął służbę w polskich jednostkach lotnictwa myśliwskiego w Wielkiej Brytanii w 1944 r. Po zakończeniu drugiej wojny światowej, w związku z brakiem możliwości bezpiecznego powrotu do Polski, wraz z żoną wyemigrował do USA, gdzie przez ponad 60 lat pozostał aktywnym przedstawicielem polskich organizacji weterańskich, a przede wszystkim polskich interesów w USA.

06/25/2021

Ludwik Zamenhof (1859-1917) was a Polish ophthalmologist, linguist and creator of Esperanto, the most widely spoken international artificial language. He was nominated 14 times for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Zamenhof was born to a Jewish family in Białystok, a vibrant multi-ethnic city, then part of the Russian Empire. He studied medicine in Moscow and Warsaw, and later started a private ophthalmology practice in Warsaw, where he lived most of his life. In 1887, he published a textbook, “The international language – Preface and complete method,” under the pseudonym Doktoro Esperanto, “the doctor who hopes.” In 1905, Zamenhof proceeded to publish “Fundamento de Esperanto,” which became a definitive guide to the language. The language is based on word roots common to the major European languages, with a highly regular grammar and 16 simple rules.

Zamenhof thought language diversity contributes to many problems, such as dissension among people, and therefore hoped Esperanto would become a universal language that promotes a peaceful co-existence of different people and cultures. He also believed that an international language would have great practical benefits for science, commerce, and literature. He released his rights to the language and offered it for universal use. The advantages of the language were recognized by linguists and an international movement was created, with Esperanto groups forming throughout Europe and the world. In 1905 in Boulogne-sur-Mer, France, the first World Congress of Esperanto took place.

In 1954, the United Nations granted official support to Esperanto as an international auxiliary language. It is the most widely spoken artificial language in the world, with up to two million speakers.

General information

The Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Washington, DC was established as one of Poland's first foreign missions after Poland regained independence in 1918. The Embassy's four-story building was designed by renowned architect George Oakley Totten for Mary Foote Henderson, who invested a substantial portion of her husband Senator John Henderson’s fortune to make this portion of 16th Street the most magnificent avenue in the U.S. capital. Completed in 1910, the building is an exquisite example of early 20th-century Beaux Art design. The government of Poland purchased the building shortly after the U.S. and Poland established diplomatic relations on April 16, 1919. The Polish Legation officially opened in 1920. Much of the English Renaissance style interior looks as it did a century ago: The white limestone structure features double-hung windows interspersed among balconies and porches in a harmonious blend of 17th and 18th century French and English styles. Works by Polish painters, including Jacek Malczewski and Wojciech Falat are displayed throughout the Embassy’s salons, and a Steinway grand piano used by Polish statesman and pianist Ignacy Jan Paderewski, adorns the Blue Salon. A lovely asset to Washington, DC’s architectural wealth, the Embassy houses unique Polish cultural treasures along with rich historical traditions. The Embassy organizes a wide variety of cultural events, panel discussions, conferences and hosts numerous official delegations visiting Washington, DC from Poland.

May God Bless us all. Wszyscy będziemy faworyzowani w tym roku.
FEBRUARY 10 – A most infamous day in Polish history is once again upon us! February 10 this year (2021) is the 81st anniversary of the beginning of the systematic deportation of 2.636 million Poles en masse from Poland's Eastern Borderlands (the KRESY) to the wastelands of the Siberian Tundra and beyond. Pause to Remember! Pause to Reflect! Tell everyone what you know, what happened - write it down! Never forget THE FORGOTTEN HOLOCAUST! A Holocaust you will never read about because the Allies were complicit in burying it. It is time the world acknowledged and accepted there were two major genocidal Holocausts of the Poles during World War 2: one perpetrated against the Jews by Hi**er and his N**i henchmen and one perpetrated against ethnic Poles by Stalin and his NKVD cohorts! It is time the silence, secrecy and concealment surrounding the ruthless and inhumane, treatment, suffering and genocide of our Polish kin, kith and brethren was acknowledged, remembered and recognized – it happened! We who survive are living testimony to that. There are not many survivors and living witnesses left, their families are diminishing, the guilty continue to be unaccountable and get off scot free! Please read this article and share it widely before it is too late. Reader discretion is advised. Feel free to leave your comments too at the end of it.
