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:

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: 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 (right below the WWII banner) about the lustration procedure.

Polish American Congress starts American Polonia renewal

See the reality of communist agents in Polonia. Not a "witch hunt", nor imaginary subject. Very harsh reality of Polonia being infiltrated by communist agents and Polish equivalent of KGB functionaries. One of the first videos made with cooperation with Institute of National Remembrance in Poland.

"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
Herbert Hoover Memorial Pavilion
Next to Hoover Tower, Stanford University
May30 through August 26, 2006

Tygodnik Kalifornijski "Fundusz Wydawniczy"

I am very disappointed that the Tygodnik Kalifornijski was forced to hold their publication. Below is the link to the explanation in Polish I received from the editor, Pawel Krupa:

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 !!!!!!!!


We tested many calling cards which are available at 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. 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
