POLAND: Independence Day /11.11.2007
We have started our multimedia diary with Independence Day and we would like to close our yearly report with that celebration just to stress, how much important this holiday is for Poles.
This year our Independence Day was connected partially with Katyń celebration.
The main country events are placed in Warsaw - we were there 'the day after' and here you are some photo report.

Jozef Pilsudski is thought to be a creator of independent Poland.
Jozef Pilsudski was a Polish revolutionary and statesman, Field Marshal, first Chief of State from 1918 of the Second Polish Republic, as well as head of its armed forces. From the middle of World War I until his death, Piłsudski was the major influence on Poland's government and foreign policy, and an important figure in European politics. He is considered largely responsible for Poland having regained her independence in 1918, 123 years after the last partitions of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in 1795.
