Countering Cultures in Difficult Times: The Kosciuszko Foundation and Polish-American Cooperation 1925-1945

Monday, November 11, 2013, at 7:00pm

Commemorate Polish Independence Day with a day of Polish-American history. 

The Kosciuszko Foundation played a major role in fighting misinformation, prejudice, and stereotypes about Poles after 1918. The KF was even called the "informal Polish embassy" and was one of the main Polonia organizations involved in creating positive Polish PR abroad. 

The authority of Steven Mizwa and his cooperators not only helped to improve official Polish-American cooperation, but most of all proved its effectiveness by rescuing many Polish Professors during World War 2.

Learn how it all came about, and what kind of tricks were played to get intellectuals out of Nazi Hell. 

A part of Dr. Pudlocki's two-part lecture series at the Kosciuszko Foundation.

This event is free and open to the public.
