Wajda's "Katyn" chances for the Oscar

We have received numerous requests to forward an appeal to people to take part in the Internet voting for the Oscars. We agree that Katyn needs a special recognition and we Poles or Americans of Polish descent have a unique opportunity to bring this mass murder of Polish officers to the attention of more people than ever, but we think that it has to be some balance observed. Today the web site given to us is recording Katyn as 92% winner, whereas the most prominent site listed on the very top in the search engine research is listing Katyn as a very last in its category with 12% votes. therefore appeals to all people who agree with the above reasons to vote for Katyn at the highest ranking web page at the below address/link: "Best Foreign-Language Film" is about half way down and as of today [Feb.7,2008] is last with 12% votes. Please create an ID if you do not have one and vote. Voting for all categories is not necessary. Big Thank You from for your participation. == PLEASE FORWARD THIS APPEAL TO ANYONE YOU CAN THINK COULD HELP ==

Polish tutor needed in San Francisco

We received a following inquiry: "I am interested in finding a Polish tutor in the San Francisco area. I speak intermediate Polish and would like to keep up and advance my conversational ability. I would also like the tutor to be able to explain grammatical issues when they come up. ... I would like to have lessons in San Francisco once a week. Thanks for looking into this for me."
Anyone who can provide help for a reasonable fee please write to with a subject: "Polish language tutor"

Fantastic overview of the political situation in Poland

This video provides a recording from one of the meetings organized by the "Political Thinker Club" [Klub Mysli Politycznej] in Krakow, Poland. The interesting guest reveals many facts, unknown to wide audience, i.e. that he is a member of a small political party and he WAS NEVER member of PiS. He reveals reasons for his political actions. [IN POLISH]: (please prepare to watch a video out of synch, despite that it is very interesting and worth watching)

Piano virtuoso from Poland in San Francisco

Warsaw Chopin Competition Gold Medalist
is going on his First US Tour
Sunday, May 11 at 7:00 pm in Herbst Theatre, San Francisco

In October 2005, in an electrifying outing this 20 year old Polish virtuoso swept the field at the 15th International Frederic Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, winning the Gold Medal. He is the first Pole in 20 years to win this prestigious competition (since Krystian Zimmerman).

The young artist is Europe's new sensation. His calendar is now fully booked 2 years in advance and includes more than 120 performances at the major cultural centers of Europe, United States and the Far East. His concerts sell out weeks ahead of time. San Francisco concert organizers have created a "Polonia Discount": tickets, normally $38, will be only $30.
This is available only by phone: 1-415-392-4400.
The patron just has to mention the Polonia Discount to receive it.

Come to celebrate great talent, come to celebrate Poland's day in San Francisco!
