1 p.m. Location: Polish Club, San Francisco, 3040 22nd Street
I am faced with a very difficult dilemma. My main goal in my
activities is to make sure that the atmosphere in the Polish
community in San Francisco gets better and all people have a
chance to be part of Polonia organizations. The dilemma how to
balance between that goal and all kinds of provocations and/or
strange actions from a small number of people. I try to ignore
most of the personal attacks, because I see they are designed
to create unrest, but I cannot ignore the recent attempt
to hide elections to the local Polish American Congress.
Originally the elections were scheduled for June 18, 2006.
The information was kept secret until Mr. Zdzislaw Zakrzewski
made it public in a letter to the PAC members. Amazingly ALL
the "Polonia Portals" connected to the PAC were dead silent
about the meeting. The previous PAC meeting of April 2, 2006,
was widely advertised by this group of people. You can see
it very clearly here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PoloniaSF-Forum/message/180
When the information about the secret election meeting was
published, these people used a very naive reason to postpone
it. They changed the date to create confusion. Mr. Zakrzewski
was forced to send another announcement to all PAC members to
make that new information available. Luckily, that episode is
over and you are asked to come and make a difference. All the
"very popular portals" and that same people who kept the previous
date secret are now heavily advertising the new election date.
You can check the popularity of any web site here: http://www.alexa.com/data/details/main?q=poloniasf.org&url=poloniasf.org
They classify first six million pages in the world. Pages less
popular have status "No Data".
According to information from the PAC National Office in Chicago
Mr. Zukowski is to address the issue of IPN matters to members
and officers of PAC. The Council of National Directors adopted
a measure which addresses that each candidate to the elective
office within PAC on the state level shall submit their name to
IPN for the voluntary lustration procedure. Please see the movie
on http://www.PoloniaSF.org (right below the WWII banner) about
the lustration procedure.

"Stanford Exhibit" - Article by Zbigniew Stanczyk
"Herbert Hoover In Poland: Pioneer Humanitarian at Work"
Next to Hoover Tower, Stanford University
May30 through August 26, 2006
The acclaimed exhibit of Herbert Hoover’s humanitarian work that
toured Poland has opened at the Herbert Hoover Exhibit Pavilion
on May 30. The exhibit drew big crowds in each of the cities in
Krakow, Katowice, Warsaw, Lodz, and Poznan, where it was shown.
"Herbert Hoover In Poland: Pioneer Humanitarian at Work" illustrates
Herbert Hoover's commitment to the survival and the well-being of
Poland and the means by which he did so. Through Hoover’s efforts
the lives of millions of people were saved.
During and after World War I, Hoover directed the largest relief
operation ever mounted in Europe, during which millions of Europeans
were saved from starvation and death. In the first months of 1919,
tens of thousands of rail cars full of U.S. food left Gdansk on their
way to Polish cities. Within six months, more than $50 million worth
of food had been delivered. In 1919 alone, the program fed more than
1.5 million children. After 1920,Hoover increased that number to
2 million and expanded the number of kitchens to ten thousand. For
almost four years following the war, half a billion meals were fed
to the hungry and starving of Poland.
During World War II, Hoover led another organization, the Commission
for Polish Relief, which again alleviated the sufferings of hundreds
of thousands of Polish people. After the war, in 1946, Hoover visited
Poland and drafted yet another relief plan. For the next thirty years
Poles benefited from that assistance.
Also, as a result of this exhibition, Polish authorities decided to
reconstruct the monument that once stood in Warsaw honoring Herbert
Hoover and the United States. Additionally, a memorial plaque honoring
Herbert Hoover was unveiled in a central plaza of the city of Poznan.
For the Poles, knowledge of Hoover’s efforts to aid them during and
after the First World War and then again in the trying times during
and after World War II was suppressed for many decades. As a Polish
exhibition viewer said, “Thank you for the unveiling of another
chapter in our history distorted by the communists. Please bring
us more … testimonies to fill the gaps of our history.”
The exhibition and accompanying catalog were made possible with
assistance from the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum.
The exhibit is open Tuesday through Saturday 11 AM - 4 PM, 11 AM to 4 PM

Hoover Institution's European specialist, a native of Poland.

Private tours can be arranged for groups of five or more
I am hoping Polonia will be able to help to restore the publication
of Tygodnik Kalifornijski. If they get 200 more subscriptions they,
I think, will be able to continue. In addition, I am proposing to
establish a publishing fund within a Polish non profit organization
or by TK itself. TK could dedicate a small space to list donations
as "Fundusz Wydawniczy" and publish how it is being spend. I am sure
some of you and hopefully your friends will help. Personally, I have
known Pawel Krupa as an extremely honest individual, so I have
no problem with him managing such fund. I hope he will earn the
trust of many more people who would contribute to keep the Tygodnik
afloat. Please send your money now. Hopefully Tygodnik can resume
soon. I am sending them directly $100. Please do the same.
If you have any ideas how to help, please contact TK directly at:

Call 3 cents per minute from Poland to USA !!!!!!!!
PLEASE SUPPORT POLONIASF.ORG BY PURCHASING CALLING CARDS THERE
We tested many calling cards which are available at http://www.PoloniaSF.org
To get them you need to click on the card picture in the upper
left corner. You will see many cards to pick from. They all deliver
superb quality, but the differences are in maintenance fees, taxes
and access numbers. Some of the cards can be used from Poland, few
can be used with a web interface, where you can connect any two
phones in the world. That way you can call from Poland to US for
just 5 cents per minute - card CONTINENTAL. There is no connection
fee on any card.
Here are other recommendations depending on your calling pattern:
CHEAP STREET - Frequent and long calls - effective rate (including
taxes and maintenance fee) 1.5 to 2.5 cents per minute
JUPITER - Infrequent calls, can call from Canada and Russia -
effective rate (no maintenance fee, including taxes
and rounding) 2.5 - 3.0 cents per minute
BIZON - Infrequent calls - can call from many countries in
Europe, but not Poland - effective rate (as above)
3.5 to 3.8 cents per minute - INCLUDING ALL TAXES!!!
The best thing is that there is no obligation to continue, no phone
hookup. Complete freedom.
PoloniaSF.org receives 10% of the commission. Currently it amounts
to few dollars per month. The funds help to offset the expenses the
volunteers pay in order to run the web site. Please help by asking
your friends to purchase the calling cards at http://www.PoloniaSF.org
