2022 Polish National Independence Day

Narodowe Święto Niepodległości


“November 11th is a special day for the Polish people because it represents the fulfillment of their pursuit of freedom during Poland’s long and painful history. The many doomed uprisings, the bondage of Siberian exile, and efforts to sustain Polish culture and identity were not in vain. After over a century of a consistent, dedicated, and tireless fight, Poland emerged from the iron chains of the partitioning powers. November 11th is the collective legacy of generations of Polish patriots who stood against overwhelming odds. It was the day when Poles’ dreams and hopes were fulfilled in the rebirth of their nation” /from the Polish American Congress (PAC) website/


“I deeply believe in the independent, sovereign, free Poland. I deeply believe in my compatriots. I deeply believe in the sense of great faith – latent in everyone and in all of us — in the value of sovereign, independent, our own Poland, where we govern and make decisions all by ourselves. I deeply believe in the wisdom of our society” – said Polish President Andrzej Duda during the ceremony and guard briefing at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Warsaw. The Lithuanian President Gitanas Nausėda was in attendance.
