There's been quite a bit of interest in setting up Polish History Nights, and we're working on it. Our plan is to kick this off by watching an historical movie, and discussing some of the context for the film before/after we watch it. We seem to have at least one person in the group with a good background in Polish history who is willing to present info related to the film.
But, to get going, we need two things:
1. We need historical films to watch. I know we have KATYN in the group... does anyone have access to other historically based films?
2. We need a place to watch them. Someone's house would be ideal, and if anyone wants to volunteer that would be GREAT! (You would not be responsible to provide refreshments... just a place where we can gather to watch and be at ease to hang out and chat for a bit would be perfect.)
If you can help or have info to share, please either respond to this on our discussion board or reply to me directly.
This meetup is aimed at people who share a Polish heritage or a sincere interest in Poland and the Polish language. Polish will be spoken at the meetups whenever possible, though Polish skills are not required. People who want to learn or practice Polish are welcome. We look forward to meeting you and having fun together as we celebrate all things Polish!
