On 24-31 October 2018 further events will take place as part of the IPN’s History Point project in Chicago, in cooperation with the Polish Teachers Association in America.
In connection with the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining its independence this year, we would like to remind Poles living in Chicago of this important event. During the visit of the employees of the National Education Office of the Institute of National Remembrance lessons for students at Polish schools in Chicago and workshops for teachers are going to be held. The aim is to familiarize the pupils with the figures of the Fathers of Independence and their role in creating Poland as well as the story of Baśka Murmańska, a bear accompanying Polish soldiers. In addition, the IPN educators are going to visit memorial sites related to the history of Poles – the Memorial to the Fallen of World War I, the Katyn and Smolensk monuments, as well as the Polish Museum in Chicago. They will also pay a visit to the Polish American Congress and to the archives of Dziennik Związkowy, the oldest Polish-language newspaper in the world. Our representatives will also talk about their visit to the Chicago media - the WPNA radio.
New York is going to be the next stage of the journey, where for the fifth time, in cooperation with Stowarzyszenie Pamięć, events are going to take place at the History Point of the Institute of National Remembrance.
