Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - he fight for Monte Cassino combines an epic struggle, extraordinary courage, and tremendous sacrifice. From January to May 1944, fifty thousand Polish soldiers-both human and animal-fought to push the Allied offensive north to Rome. But there was more than military defeat of the Nazis in Italy at stake. Victory in the freezing, muddy mountainous wasteland that came to be the battlefield was supposed to unlock freedom for Poland. Working under British command, the Polish fighters at Monte Cassino achieved glory for their nation-but at a terrible cost. On the 75th anniversary year of the battle, this presentation unpacks how some of the most valorous warriors of Poland came to Monte Cassino, how they slogged their way to victory, and how we can appreciate their heroic deed.

Wednesday, October 16, 2019 - Brazil has the third largest Polish diaspora community in the world, after the US and Germany. Although some Poles settled down in Brazil earlier, the mass Polish immigration movement, often called the "Brazilian fever", started only after the failure of successive national uprisings organized during the partitions period. The peak of immigration occurred in the two last decades of the 19th century. However, this was just the biggest surge of immigration, after which there were at least three smaller waves. Poles left Polish territory and were attracted to Brazil due to several important political/social/economic factors. But the four main immigration waves were different - not only did they settle in different places, but the Polish immigrants also had completely different origins, opportunities, ambitions and plans for their lives in Brazil. Based on her own field studies and existing scholarship, Dr. Siuda-Ambroziak will present a general profile of this heterogeneous Polish community in Brazil. She will also discuss important issues connected with its past, present and the immediate future, including ethnic revival issues, Polish ethnic organizations, citizenship matters, and other challenges for the Polish diaspora in Brazil.
