Things to Do During Polish American Heritage Month

October is the Polish American Heritage Month. You can do what I did in one of the elementary schools in Mountain View, CA. I setup a room decorated with Polish flag and few Polish items. The school supplied a big wall map of Poland. Every hour a different class visited the Polish classroom. I talked about Polish history, geography and Polish famous people for about 25 minutes. The rest of the class time was dedicated to answering questions from students. Please do it. It is fun.

Listed below are suggested activities for your October celebration:

Used children books for Polish children learning English

If you have children books you do not need anymore, please bring them to a donation stations setup in many places in the San Francisco Bay Area. The locations will be given in the next Newsletter. The books will be used in Poland to help in teaching English in the Lublin area.

If your business is interested in helping to collect the donations please write email to poloniasfo@yahoo.com. You will be asked to place a box in an area accessible to the public, where people could come and place the books inside.

If you wish you can receive a receipt for your donated books. Donations are tax deductible to the fair marked value of the donated books. You as the donator determine the value of the books, the receipt is just for the number of books donated.

Poles Reverse German Land Grab
Fears that rich Germans would storm into Poland following EU enlargement and buy up properties appear unfounded. Houses are being bought, but it's the Poles who are finding deals -- in East Germany.

Deserving a Place in the World’s Memory
Calling up memories of the past in the name of politics - sometimes called historical politics - arouses well-justified concerns because politics does not support historical truth or care for the very notion of truth.
