    Concert of Polish music will take place at the Santa Monica Library on Saturday, September 7th at 2 PM. The concert will be accompanied by a special exhibition telling the story of the Polish struggle against the totalitarian regimes, the love of freedom and heroism to save others.

    At dawn on September 1st 1939 the German Reich invaded Poland, starting World War II. 17 days later eastern Poland was invaded by the Soviet Red Army. The war first spread in Europe, and then expanded throughout the entire world, leading to the greatest catastrophe in the history of humankind that will cost the lives of millions of innocent victims.

     

     

    Today, our memory of the tragedy of World War II unites generations and remains an expression of utmost respect for the sacrifices of those who stood up first to the enemy fighting for freedom of our Motherland, Europe and ultimately the whole world.
