Stanislaw Michalkiewicz correspondence from San Francisco

Polonia San Francisco Bay Area had a unique opportunity to meet one of the top Polish political commentators from Poland. We had great opportunity to find out what really comes with the term of "IV Rzeczpospolita" and why is it used in current Polish political life. The Polish text of his correspondence from San Francisco is provided below. The video link will be soon on Google Video under the keyword Michalkiewicz. Similarly, the video from the Polonia meeting where he explains in detail various aspects of Polish political life.

Project INDEX – In memory of Poles murdered for assistance to Jews


Project "INDEX – In memory of Poles murdered or prosecuted by the Nazis because of their assistance to Jews"

In September 2006, the Institute of National Remembrance (IPN) – with the cooperation of the Institute of Strategic Studies, the Head Office of State Archives of Poland, the State Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau, and Yad Vashem – launched a project “INDEX – In memory of Poles murdered or prosecuted by the Nazis because of their assistance to Jews”. The main goal of this research project is to assess the scale of Nazi repression against Poles who provided aid to Jews during the Holocaust as well as to establish their names and biographies.


THE MUSIC & DANCE OF POLAND: MAZOWSZE is a thrilling kaleidoscopic display of dazzling movement, vibrant color and stunning beauty. The incomparable Mazowsze (Mah-ZOV-sheh) performance troupe whirl and leap, stamp and glide in a glorious outpouring of sound and motion, rhythm and music that celebrates the cultural legacy of Poland. Polish-American entertainer Bobby Vinton narrates.

While the choreography and musical arrangements represent 39 distinctive ethnographic regions of Poland with traditional performance styles, the appeal of Mazowsze's dynamic stage show goes beyond audiences of Polish descent. An ensemble of 65 dancers and singers are arrayed in a seemingly never-ending series of handmade traditional costumes -- more than 1,000 in total, one more dramatic and colorful than the next and some weighing as much as 30 lbs., making their energetic gravity-defying leaps, twirls and lifts even more impressive. A full 23-member orchestra performs music ranging from Chopin to simple folk melodies beloved by the Poles for centuries. Strategically mounted high definition cameras and microphones capture this stellar performance, recorded live at the Polish National Opera House in Warsaw, Poland.

Mazowsze is internationally recognized as Poland's cultural ambassadors. In the last 50 years they have performed more than 6,000 shows in cities around the world. The troupe's founders, singer/actress Mira Ziminska and conductor/composer Tadeusz Sygietynski, dedicated themselves to preserve the rich music and dance traditions of Poland after the devastation of World War II.
