Defamatory statements and exposure to hatred, contempt or ridicule in the book “Flight And Freedom: Stories Of Escape To Canada”.

Dear Ms Reisman,
Dear Ms Crocker,

I am writing to request that the book “Flight And Freedom: Stories Of Escape To Canada”, by Ratna Omidvar and Dana Wagner, published by Between the Liners publishing house be withdrawn immediately from sale in bookstores and online. This book contains false and defamatory statements, which are anti-Polish. The writing contains words that insult and injure the reputation of a person and the entire Polish nation as well as its diaspora (including Canadians of Polish origin) around the world as a result of exposing them to hatred, contempt or ridicule. With this withdrawal we would like to see a public statement of correction and apology.

Of note, on page 178 in this book there is mention of “Polish SS”, which is grossly inaccurate and offensive. The SS was a German paramilitary organization most responsible for the implementation of the so-called “Final Solution” for racial cleansing. Its members committed crimes against humanity during World War II (1939–45). They were responsible for the killing of millions of people, including Poles and Jews. After the defeat of Nazi Germany, the entire SS corps, along with the Nazi Party, was judged by the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg to have been a criminal organization. There was never any “Polish SS” unit!

Poland was the first victim in the aggression of WWII. Invaded from the West on September 1st 1939 by Germany and from the East, on September 17th 1939 by the Soviet Union, Poland suffered great losses. The German - Soviet occupation of Poland lasted 5 tragic years. Poles formed an Underground State (WIN and NSZ) and a Home Army, known as Armia Krajowa (AK), which resisted and fought its occupiers throughout the 5 years. As a result of German mass execution, torture, imprisonment and ethnic cleansing, 6 million Poles lost their lives, including 3 million Polish Jews (referred to as the Holocaust).

Both the Polish Underground State during WWII and the Polish Home Army established official administrative, financial and organizational structures to help and protect Jews in German-occupied Poland. This was nobly carried out, using all available means in a time of terror and oppression, at the cost of incarceration, bestial torture and death. Thousands of Poles participated and in recognition of these efforts, 6,339 Poles of a total of 24,356 people have to date been granted the highest civilian award of the State of Israel, i.e. the title of "Righteous Among the Nations” This means that the State of Israel has acknowledged that from among all the nations engulfed by the war waged by the German Third Reich, as much as 26 percent of all documented cases of aiding Jews at the peril of death to the helper and his or her family, are credited to non-Jewish Poles.

This brief reminder of the history of Poland and its people during WWII underscores the defamatory nature of the above-mentioned book, which is unfit for publication, sale and distribution.

We request your prompt and immediate action.

Respectfully yours, Waclaw Kujbida, for the Council of North America Polish Gazette Clubs

Presentation of Mrs Lidia Sokołowska-Cybart, lawyer-linguist from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.

In waves of unwarranted domestic and international political and media criticism towards the newly elected Polish authorities public opinion is repeatedly exposed to inaccuracies and misrepresentations. So, it is worth repeating FACTS to prevent imprinting false messages and subconscious acceptance for unlawful and undemocratic faits accomplis, to the real detriment of Democracy and the Rule of Law in Europe.

FACT 1: There is no real EU legal procedure under the so-called Rule of Law Framework, as claimed to have been initiated against Poland by the European Commission on January 13, 2016. The Rule of Law Framework does not bind either Poland or other EU Member States or any other entity, except perhaps the Commission itself. Therefore, the Commission acted unlawfully, attempting to introduce unilaterally some procedures based on faits accomplis. BACKGROUND:The “procedure” has appeared recently in a document based apparently on an internal resolution of the Commission called quite satirically the Rule of Law Framework. Under the Article 7 of TEU, it is the European Council and not the Commission who has the authority to determine the status of the Rule of Law and other values in a Member State. The Commission merely has the right to make a proposal to the European Council, the same role as any one third of the Member States, and no other role.

FACT 2: The Commission’s internal resolutions, called the Rule of Law Framework and the resolution to apply it against Poland on 13 January 2016 have been adopted in a non-transparent, substandard way, e.g. there is no citation on the specific legal authority for the resolutions, no description of specific factual and normative objections, no description of each party’s position, no data on votes or dissents, not even on whether there was any voting at all, not to mention the names of the authors of the resolutions or any expert opinions considered or rejected, including an opinion of the so-called Venice Commission requested and awaited by Poland. Regrettably, there are also mixed, confusing messages from President Jean-Claude Juncker and First Vice President Frans Timmermans on the Commission’s position, as Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski informs. Therefore, the Commission proceeds not only without any legal basis but also in a non-transparent, hasty and substandard manner.

FACT 3: It is the common knowledge that the Commissioners are not elected democratically. The method of selecting a candidate for a Commissioner, despite some cosmetic guises, is arbitrary, non-transparent and lacks public scrutiny, as is the case for example of President Jean-Claude Juncker and First Vice President Frans Timmermans. Therefore, the Commission has no democratic mandate.

FACT 4: The European Parliament certainly may discuss any topic within the scope of the EU law. Yet, before the European Council decides to initiate any procedure under Article 7 of TEU, there is no legal “procedure” against Poland available unilaterally to the Parliament either. Therefore, any resolution of the Parliament against Poland at this time would be solely political and would have no legal meaning.

FACT 5: The Council of Europe is a legal entity separate from the European Union and the decision not to include any discussion on Poland in its agenda, taken on 25 January 2016 by its Parliamentary Assembly has no formal, legal bearing on the workings of EU. The Venice Commission, a constitutional expert organization consisting of member-states and individual expert members, is an organization working within the Council of Europe, not the European Union. The Venice Commission will provide in March, on request of Poland, the first internationally recognized expert opinion on the recent statutory changes on the Constitutional Tribunal in Poland. Therefore, the decision of the CE Parliamentary Assembly taken on 25 January 2016 is politically important and may be indicative of some European political trends but not necessarily mean any positive change in the EU Commission’s position.

FACT 6: There are significant issues requiring urgent attention and-most importantly-solutions by the institutions and all EU Member States, for example migration crisis, terrorism, EURO problems, Brexit, Nord Stream 2 and more. There are also serious, confirmed and urgent concerns in Germany and other EU Member States in the aftermath of the arbitrary migration decision of Chancellor Angela Merkel both on the media freedom as well as the Rule of Law; the former German Constitutional Tribunal judges spoke out about breaking the law by Merkel. Thus, at long last, why is the unelected EU Commission allowed to take up illegally some alleged case of the newly-elected Polish authorities while ignoring grave and long-lasting concerns in many other EU Member States, all certainly at the expense of valuable resources diverted from resolving very serious all-European issues?

Mister Verhofstadt,

As a citizen of Poland I know much more about the history of Europe that you can imagine. I know, for example, where the first giant genocide in the world took place. It was in Kongo, during the reign of your king, Leopold II. There were about 10 millions of victims of your king’s greed. Joseph Conrad, an English writer of Polish origin, described this crime in his novel entitled “Heart of Darkness” (“Jądro ciemności”).

Your small country has existed for ca. 180 years. Poland has existed since 966! It was Poland that established the real principles of democracy and tolerance at the Council of Constance in 15th century, through Polish envoy, Paweł Włodkowic! And now, you dare teach us democracy, Mister Verhofstad?! You aim to influence the results of Polish democratic elections by force? And who are you to do such a thing? Perhaps a new First Secretary of Brussels-based Kremlin 2.0?

You dare support the smallest oppositional Polish party? The leader of this party doesn’t even know the most important religious holidays in his own country and believes that there were six kings visiting Jesus after His birth.

There is no doubt whatsoever as to your – and your acolytes’ – real intentions, Mister Verhofstadt, and that is to destroy the new Polish government and the parliament, chosen by the nation in free, democratic elections. You should be ashamed for such a Europe, Mister Verhofstadt.

Polish citizen, Elzbieta Morawiec PhD

Ladies and Gentlemen!

niezaleznalogoContrary to alarmists media reports we want to reassure you – in Poland, there are no threats to democracy. The mainstream media keep criticising the current government at will, all day long. People enjoy the right to public protest. This seems obvious in a democracy, however, during the last eight years it was not standard in Poland. It was during the rule of the Civic Platform and Polish People’s Party (PO-PSL) coalition that the standards of a democratic state were frequently violated. Here are some examples.

– During the rule of PO-PSL coalition, independent journalists were repeatedly harassed by the security agencies. The staff of, among others, “Gazeta Polska” had their homes searched. In May 2011, at six in the morning, agents of the Internal Security Agency entered the flat of an Internet user who ran a satirical website on Bronisław Komorowski.

– Independent journalists were dismissed from their posts as they demanded honest investigation into the Smolensk crash. Tomasz Sakiewicz and Anita Gargas, among others, lost their jobs in the public media. Cezary Gmyz was dismissed from the editorial staff of “Rzeczpospolita” for publishing information indicating that there were traces of TNT found on the wreck of the plane that crashed at Smolensk. Later, the information was confirmed by the prosecutors leading the investigation.

– In June 2014, agents of the Internal Security Agency raided the office of a weekly “Wprost” which revealed stenographic records of conversations held by most important politicians. The agents wanted to confiscate computers and data storage discs belonging to the journalists. The so called tape scandal that erupted a few days earlier, provided evidence, among other things, that state-owned companies subsidized only the media writing in favour of the government. They ignored such indicators as reading of the press.

Media houses were pressed not to place their advertisements in the independent press. For that reason a huge part of the media, Gazeta Polska included, were deprived of paid-for commercial advertisements.

– In December 2014, two journalists (Tomasz Gzell of the Polish Press Agency and Jan Pawlicki of Telewizja Republika) were arrested. They covered the protest held at the headquarters of the National Electoral Commission. For a week or so the Commission was not able to provide the results of the local elections which agitated Poles and some decided to occupy the premises of the Commission. The journalists were arrested even though they had their identity cards. They also faced a lawsuit against them. To this very day the results of the last local elections remain highly questionable, the proof being 2 thousand protest notes lodged in local courts.

– During the last 8 years, the previous government kept journalists and citizens under surveillance as a usual practice. Only in 2014, the secret service applied to have 2,177,000 telephone billings. In Europe we were definitely in the lead. The District Public Prosecutor’s Office in Warsaw is having an investigation into the wiretapping of independent journalists. In all likelihood, the service had no court warrant to do so.

– In May 2015, after lost election by President Bronisław Komorowski, the PO-PSL coalition violated the constitution and decided to elect new members of the Constitutional Tribunal. The politicians of the retiring coalition wanted to limit the right of the new ruling party to elect judges of their choice and appropriate the Tribunal completely. Today, after the reforms implemented by the Law and Justice (PiS), the judges elected by the Civic Platform still constitute the majority. They occupy 9 of 15 seats in the Constitutional Tribunal.

These are just a few glaring examples. Similar violations of civil liberties were truly abundant. The government formed by the PO-PSL coalition were also involved in many corruption scandals. Under their nose a pyramid scheme Amber Gold flourished, thousands of Poles were cheated and deprived of their savings. The public said enough is enough and two months ago in democratic election removed the PO-PSL coalition from power.

Democracy in Poland is doing fine, as compared to the eight years under the previous government.

Film „Czy naprawdę wierzysz?” to opowieść o potężnym darze, który drzemie w człowieku i tylko czeka, by go użyć... to film w którym twórcy pytają „Czy naprawdę wierzysz?”, bo prawdziwa wiara wymaga działania. Kolejne dzieło twórców porywającej ekranizacji „Bóg nie umarł”.

czynaprawdewierzyszMatthew nie może się otrząsnąć z wrażenia, jakie wywarło na nim spotkanie z odważnym ulicznym kaznodzieją. Kiedy wreszcie zrozumiał, jak ma wyglądać jego życie, zaczynają się dziać prawdziwe cuda, o których wcześniej nie marzył. W trudnych sytuacjach wzywa mocy Bożej, a ta dotyka nie tylko jego, lecz także ludzi, którzy pojawiają się na jego drodze: bezdomnej dziewczyny w ciąży, zawsze racjonalnego doktora czy mężczyznę umierającego na szpitalnej izbie przyjęć. Wszystkie te historie są częścią planu, którego scenariusz mógł napisać tylko Bóg. Potęga wiary, siła nadziei, odwaga świadectwa. „Czy naprawdę wierzysz?” to więcej niż film. To pytanie, na które każdy musi sobie sam odpowiedzieć.

Twórcy o filmie: "W naszym filmie przeplata się wiele historii. Każdy z bohaterów znajduje się na innym etapie życia, ale wszyscy potrzebują tego samego. Chodzi tu o siłę i znaczenie krzyża w dzisiejszym społeczeństwie. To potężny film" - mówi David A.R. White jeden z producentów filmu.

Chuck Konzelman, Cary Solomon, autorzy scenariusza: "Pracę zawsze rozpoczynamy od modlitwy. Wpuszczamy Boga do naszych serc i on mówi nam, czego chce. Chcemy opowiedzieć ludziom o tym, kim jest nasz Bóg. W tym filmie żaden z bohaterów nie dominuje, nikt nie zna wszystkich elementów układanki. Tak, jak w życiu, prawda?"

In this Aleteia interview, Zoe Romanowsky speaks with Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman, the Hollywood writers and producers behind God’s Not Dead and the recently released film, Do You Believe?

Solomon and Konzelman are Catholics who believe the Lord is at work in Hollywood and modern technology is supporting a growing parallel industry of Christian film-making:

"To put it in neo-Marxist terms, faith-based films have stolen the means of production. They are making films without traditional studios or distribution… And the breaking of that mold is revolutionary." says Konzelman.

Solomon agrees and says that we need to remember there’s a culture war going on:

"People have to realize, we’re at war, and this war is not with guns and bullets, but with scripts and cameras. We are vying for the heart of people who are indecisive and could be lost":



Protest against incompetent expression FBI Director Mr James Brien Comey Jr., on the role of Poles in the Holocaust, published on April 16 in The Washington Post

President Lech Kaczyński Civic Academic Clubs*
in Kraków, Łódź, Poznań, Warszawa

Kraków, April 20, 2015

The Editor, Washington Post

This is to express our deep concern about the incompetence of the FBI director, Mr James Brien Comey Jr.

The Washington Post published on 16 April parts of Mr Comey’s speech in which he demonstrated an unusual degree of ignorance when pointing out to the Poles as co-perpetrators of Nazi crimes. It must be made clear that:

1. Nazism was a political ideology originated and practised in Germany by the Germans.

2. In the name of this ideology the Germans started the war which resulted in the German occupation of Poland.

3. During the years of this occupation and in the name of the Nazi ideology, the Germans murdered around 5 million Polish citizens including 2 million ethnic Poles and 3 million ethnic Jews, and also, millions of Jews from other countries, as well as people of different nationalities.

4. A considerable part of those crimes was perpetrated in concentration camps on the occupied Polish territories – the camps which were organized and run by Germans.

5. Poland was the only country in occupied Europe where protection of Jews was punished by death, a penalty dealt to, under a collective responsibility system, not only to the person hiding a Jew, but also to a whole family, neighbours, and in extreme cases – to all inhabitants of the area. Despite this, it was Poles who were awarded the greatest number of “The Rightous Among the Nations” medals (6532) in recognition of their role in saving the Jews.

6. Poland was the only country in the German occupied Europe where there never existed a collaboration network which would cooperate in any way with the Nazi germany. There never was any Polish organization or institution which participated in the Holocaust. The Polish emigre government as well as the Underground State structures, including the Underground Army prosecuted and punished by death those who denounced the Jews in hiding. Polish Underground Army provided the arms to the members of the Jewish getto uprising in Warsaw. It was the Polish emigre government agencies that were the first to prepare reports on the German genocide of the Jews and tried to alert the public opinion of the civilized world.


All these facts are unknown to the FBI Director. Through his ignorance he insults and falsifies the history of America’s loyal ally, Poland, who supported the US in the two wars in the Gulf and in the war on terror. And, above all, he provokes a question:
Is the US safe given that one of its most important security agencies is headed by a man who accuses of crimes the victims of those crimes? What other facts could he fail to distinguish or identify? How much else is there that the FBI Director does not know or does not understand?

On March 24th, during the Brussels meeting of the Subcommittee on European Security and Defence, the presentation of dr. Bogdan Gajewski – a known Continuing Airworthness Expert and member of the International Society of Air Safety Investigators – was intterrupted and stopped on the request of the two Euro-MP's from the German CDU (Christian Democratic Party) - Michael Gahler and Elmar Brok.

For this meeting Dr. Bogdan Gajewski, a Canadian who also belongs to the Group of Independent Experts of the Polish Parliamentary Investigation Committee of the Smolensk 2010 Crash had prepared a presentation entitled "The case for the Military Airport in Smolensk – an Evaluation on Report of the Smolensk Crash." Unfortunately, as early as 5 minutes, 42 second, the German CDU MEP Michael Gahler interrupted Dr. Gajewski, requesting the immediate withdrawal of his voice as it relates to this issue - in the words of this MP – of Polish internal affairs. (Quote - "... I can not afford to let him to continue to press ahead of the speech ...").

As you might expect, the chairman of that meeting - the German CDU MP - Elmar Brok, also ostentatiously acceded to this request, even without request for a vote on the floor, allowing Dr. Bogdan Gajewski only to deliver a short, single sentence of the conclusion.

Here's how the European Parliament exercises the freedom of speech and solidarity between the peoples and nations of Europe, how they address some concerns for the safety or the common concerns of the peoples of this continent. I don't think it is also worth to analyze "a Christianity" of such actions of both of these deputies. (CDU stands for the Christian Democratic Unions of Germany).

Almost at the time the EU Parliamnent meeting took place another tragic air disaster took place in the Alps, killing more than 150 people, mostly German passengers going from Dusseldorf to Barcelona. I am far from indicating there are any "signs" or "finger of God". Please do not suspect. Especially since people have almost never learned anything from the history. As well there is no any "sign" or a coincident in the following story: 7 months after the Smolensk Crash in Russia, in November 2012, Poland, a light moto-glider with one of the pilots from the Miller's Commission (an official Polish governemental commission to investigate the Smolensk Crash and mostly agreeing with the official Russian Iinvestigation Report) crashed in Bemowo, Warsaw. When it did crash landing the small plane cut down with its lightweight wing a massive, reinforced concrete-steel street lantern. Apart from this, after all, very timely and meaningful physical experiment and a kind of proof on the matter of aircraft wing physics, a fabricated faith that was spread by government controlled media on the absurd that several times more powerful wing of a huge passenger jet Tu-154 that crashed in Smolensk, wing of jet weightiing over 55 – ton and speeding up to several hundred meters per second, could be cut by the trunk of a birch tree which was few centiremeters in diameter - is still common, among “some” – as we call this sub-group of the Polish Society.

Watching today, once again and again, some cynical acts of pathetic representatives of what the aim was to represent the Christian Europe, united, democratic and in solidarity, I just want to cry. Literally. I regret once I had acted actively for the union of the Polish Republic to the Union. Sorry. The only way to defend myself is just to say that not only me but more of us were ripped off and seduced over the time by more that one degenerates. Have we learned anything yet?

We present the entire presentation of dr. eng. Bogdan Gajewski:


bognieumarlChcemy gorąco zachęcić Państwa do obejrzenia tego ważnego filmu. Już od 6 marca! "Bóg nie umarł" to najgłośniejszy film religijny ostatnich lat. Kilka miesięcy temu był wielkim przebojem kinowym w Stanach Zjednoczonych. Dystrybutorzy filmu w Polsce to: Rafael Film oraz Monolith Films.

Josh rozpoczyna studia na jednej z amerykańskich uczelni. W pierwszym semestrze trafia na zajęcia z filozofii prowadzone przez fanatycznego ateistę profesora Radissona. Wykładowca już na pierwszych zajęciach każe studentom napisać na kartce słynne zdanie Friedricha Nietzschego: „Bóg umarł”, i złożyć pod nim podpis. Ci, którzy tego nie zrobią mogą zrezygnować z zajęć lub... udowodnić, że Nietzsche się mylił. Z całej grupy pierwszorocznych studentów wyzwanie podejmuje tylko Josh. Ma czas do końca semestru, by przekonać słynnego wykładowcę i resztę studentów, że Bóg jednak istnieje. Rozpoczyna się pasjonujący spór, który elektryzuje całą uczelnianą społeczność i sprawia, że odmienia się życie wielu osób...

Twórcy o filmie:
Chcieliśmy, żeby widzowie wyszli z kina podbudowani, żeby poczuli w sobie energię i chęć pokazywania innym, że Bóg nie umarł. On żyje w nas i dokonuje swego dzieła każdego dnia poprzez każdego z nas. Chcielibyśmy jednocześnie w pewnym sensie wyposażyć widzów w pewność siebie i przekonanie o własnej wartości, żeby łatwiej im przychodziło znajdywanie odpowiedzi na nurtujące ich pytania”. David A.R. White jeden z producentów filmu, który wcielił się w postać pastora Dave'a.

Lisa Arnold, ko-producentka „Bóg nie umarł”, podsumowuje wypowiedzi swoich kolegów i koleżanek: „Naszym celem jest kręcenie filmów, które będą pomagały ludziom zbliżyć się do Jezusa Chrystusa i skuteczniej okazywać mu swoją miłość. Bóg nie umarł to fantastyczny film, ponieważ z jednej strony pokazuje, że Bóg ciągle istnieje, a z drugiej pomaga chrześcijanom zrozumieć, w jaki sposób rozmawiać z ludźmi niewierzącymi i udowadniać im, że Bóg z nami jest i nigdy nas nie opuścił”, opowiada Arnold.

Kiedy za nową ziemistą kulisą skryty przejdę dalej
nie pozwól daremnie łzom trwonić swej wartości

po drugiej stronie panoramy w zastygłym krajobrazie
będę pod innym kątem spoglądał na rzeczywistość

niewidzialnym cieniem kładł się u twych stóp będę
opalenizną na twym ciele i słonym smakiem bryzy

w noc upojną Super Novą oddechem twym i łzami
w czas niepokoju bezgłośną modlitwą w świątyni będę

w tobie głęboko na zawsze w twej tajemnicy do której
sama nie masz dostępu grając w kolejnej odsłonie snu

odłóż więc drżący kompas serca nie szukaj już kostiumu
poradlonego przez mrzonki człowieczego doświadczenia

i nie płacz po mnie tu

On September 8th, 2014 the Polish Gazette Club in Ottawa and the Ukrainian National Federation, Ottawa-Gatineau hosted a dinner and presentation by special guest from Poland, Tomasz Sakiewicz, Editor-in-Chief of the Polish Gazette and TV Republica.

This was an informative evening to learn first hand how this Polish journalist and author has been a key support to the Ukrainian Government in its efforts to denounce Russian sponsored terrorism and separatism in Eastern Ukraine as well as the illegal annexation of Crimea.

In his speech, mr. Tomasz Sakiewicz also said: Ladies and Gentlemen,

czasopismo1I represent a media group and a social movement that are involved in helping Ukraine. Among these media is a daily newspaper “Gazeta Polska Codziennie”, Poland’s oldest weekly “Gazeta Polska”, which has been published for almost two hundred years, monthly magazine “Nowe Panstwo”, and news portal “”, as well as associated with it online TV channel, which has one and a half million viewers. I also represent here the TV channel “Telewizja Republika” established by journalists of different backgrounds. Under the auspices of the weekly “Gazeta Polska”, we have founded in Poland and around the world four hundred clubs that gather together very patriotic and public-spirited citizens of our society. We are essentially financed by our readers. We also receive donations to our Foundation of Independent Media (Fundacja Niezalezne Media). And it turned out that these modestly financed media could play an important role during the Maidan Revolution and they still play their part while the war is going on. The concert on Kiev’s Independence Square (Maidan ) organized by our TV channel “Telewizja Republika”, which was interrupted by an attack of government forces, coincided with key moments in the struggle for a change of power in Kiev.

Journalists of our media were on Maidan; some were wounded. Every day, from the outset of the revolution, they have been covering the war in Ukraine. We organize demonstrations of support for the Ukrainian people struggling for freedom and we also arrange financial assistance. In recent days, for example, we supported the Polish humanitarian convoy.

Besides, we demand from the Polish government to provide the real assistance to Ukraine. This aid must range from money to arms deliveries. We feel obliged to require such help on the grounds of our common tradition of fight against totalitarianism and belief that only by joining together can we defend independence:

On Monday, September 8th, 2014 at 12 noon Polish Gazette Club Ottawa with EuroMaidan Ottawa, in participation with the Ukrainian National Federation Ottawa-Gatineau, the Baltic Federation in Canada and the Central and Eastern European Council held a Rally on Parliament Hill, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

The rally was to raise awareness of the ongoing invasion of Ukraine by Russia, and demonstrate that Ukraine is not the first victim of Russian oppression and will not be the last.

Also, the following five examples of acts of terrorism were mentioned during the rally: Invasion of Georiga – 2008, Smolensk Crash of Polish Air Force One -2010, Annexation of Crimea and War in Ukraine – 2014, Downing Flight MH17 – 2014.

20140908ott1Protestors called on the Government of Canada to provide more bilateral assistance to Ukraine, including decisive sectoral economic sanctions, particularly against the financial, defence and energy sectors; increased political isolation of Mr. Putin; and real military support, including arms, vehicles, surveillance equipment and other support for the Ukrainian armed forces to defend sovereign Ukrainian territory against Russia’s proxy war and recent direct invasion.

Honourable David Kilbourn, well known human rights activist and former Parliamentarian said in his speech: "...if Ukraine become a Nova-Russia and the West collapses, it will not be because of Russia’s physical strength but because of our mental weakness".

The keynote speaker from Poland, Tomasz Sakiewicz, Editor-in-Chief of the Polish Gazette and TV Republica said: Ladies and Gentlemen,

Every day dozens of people are killed in Ukraine. The war has turned into Russia’s open aggression against the nation that half a year ago has chosen independence.

20140908ott2Russian aggression in Ukraine is not the Moscow’s first military action in recent years. In 2008, Russian tanks rolled into Georgia trying to overthrow the government and to subdue the whole country. In the end, only a part of the Georgia’s territory was seized. The Kremlin was stopped due to the international action – mainly due to decisive steps of the five Central European leaders brought to Tbilisi by the Polish president Lech Kaczynski. At that time, Moscow realized that in the center of Europe was growing a great power which was able to stop imperial ambitions of the Kremlin.

This power was constituted by the agreement of one hundred million people having diverse cultures, respect for their traditions but, above all, of people who were able to join their efforts against the invaders from the East. No wonder that the main proponent of this agreement Polish President Lech Kaczynski was seen as a deadly threat by Moscow.

Flying to Smolensk, Russia on April 10th, 2010, president Kaczynski was drawn into a deadly trap. Along with a hundred representatives of the Polish state, he wanted to honor the memory of thousands of Polish POW’s murdered in Katyn massacre in 1940. As a result of Russian plotting, the president and the members of the delegation accompanying him were almost completely devoid of security measures necessary during such visits. The research and investigation carried by the independent scientists have shown that the aircraft with the Polish delegation on board exploded just above the ground. The Russians confiscated the black boxes and the wreckage of the aircraft and so far, even four years after the incident, Poles cannot reclaim them. The corpses of our leaders were desecrated and the victims’ families were intimidated. That brings to our minds the tragedy in which nearly 300 people were killed aboard Malaysian aircraft attacked by Russian terrorists operating in Ukraine. Today, we cannot wait any longer. We have to stop Russian imperialism before the war spreads the other countries. Russia must be completely isolated from the world until it ceases the aggression. Ukraine must be provided with the real financial and military help. Let’s give them money and weapons so that they will be able to protect all of us against another global tragedy:

1944 was the fifth year of the II World War (jointly started by Germans attacking the Poland on September 1st 1939 and joined by Russia attacking the Poland from the East on September 17 1939). Despite the defence military pact with Great Britain and France that Poland had at that time, these countries didn’t fulfill its obligation to step-in and militarily help the Poland by joining the conflict. Instead they stopped short on “declaring the war” then silently sit down and watch for German and Russian atrocities in Poland for the next years (over 5 millions Poles - including 2.3 millions Polish Jews were executed, murdered or send with a death sentences to German Concentration Camps built by Germans in occupied Poland). So did the World by passively watching and turning its back to these daily mass murders. If in solidarity, all so called “Fee-World” states could easy defeat these aggressors in 6 months and end the War with minimal casualties and with no further Russian and communist domination over the half of the World.

warsawuprising1Instead they’ve waited for years and the war ended with over 50 millions of victims, with loss of half Europe to the Soviet Empire and related to that communist domination and occupation and further thousands of victims and with politically re-shaped Europe which has never healed its wounds including many countries still under the domination and terror from the old post-communist powers (Patrol of Lieut. Stanisław Jankowski ("Agaton") from Batalion Pięść, 1 August 1944: "W-hour" (17:00), Wikipedia).

The Polish Army on the West (the army based in Great Britain and formed from escaped Polish Soldiers, Pilots, Airmen and Sailors) was the 4th largest Allied army in Europe that participated in the War and defeated Germans (after Soviet Union - former ally of Germany, USA and Great Britain). As we all remember that were also the Polish Pilots who made the turning point in defeating the skies over the Britain and helped to re-gain the control when Brits were loosing it.

warsawuprising2Ironically, while still using the Polish Army as an important ally, while fighting Germans arm to arm, the “Fee-World” started to hold conspiracy talks with Joseph Stalin (Teheran Conference in 1943 and Yalta Conference in February 1945) with intention to handle over to the Soviet Union its Polish Ally together with a half of the World (German Brennkommando burn Warsaw; photograph taken on Leszno Street, Wikipedia).

The Yalta Conference stamped this deal in 1945. In effect, the Poland and half of the Europe was under the communist terror and occupation for over 45 years and there is still no end to this to that day (post communist circles rule and control many of the former Soviet-blocks countries, corrupting powers, destroying their economies and weakening states and nations).

warsawuprising3As a symbol of that dirty deal, the Polish Army was excluded from the 1945 World War II Victory Parade in London, (I repeat - this was the 4th largest Allied army in Europe that participated in the War and defeated Germans). In opposite - the Red Army (which jointly started the II World War on September 17 1939) was a part of that parade (Ruins of Warsaw. After the Uprising, 85% of Warsaw was destroyed, Wikipedia).

However, the history teaches that it didn’t teach anyone and anything. Today we have the exact situation in Ukraine. The “Fee-World” is playing down the war in Ukraine, calling that “domestic conflict” or an activity of “terrorists”.

Yeah. Why don’t we wait again, until this ends in growing conflict that would need another 50 - 100 million casualties and the total destruction of our Wolrd? Why not? Someone said the conspiracy does not exist?

There are albums about Cracow that you reach for with joy - of returning to your childhood days or even times before your birth. There are works of photographic prowess, or the ones telling the city’s past with pictures focusing  on its social aspect… Today is the time to add another album to the vast collection, alongside the creations of Ignacy Krieger, Franciszek Klein, Henryk Hermanowicz or Henryk Tomasz Kaiser – “The Cracow Millenium” by Mr. Adam Bujak, as it both should be included and is worth of introducing.

In the introduction of the album, by Mr. Krzysztof Czyżewski, the city’s history is described in a nutshell. This part is an astonishing reconnaissance through Cracow’s past and the works of its architecture and art and learning about it is beneficial and worth the time.

Among the photographs, one can discover places less known, or completely inaccessible, like cloisters of enclosed religious orders, one might return to the places from childhood - in my case, the churches of Corpus Christi and St. Nicholas, one shall become astonished by the breathtaking angles and takes, or the beauty of natural light at dawn and dusk.

thecracowsmilleniumTruly captivating are the photographs in which Mr. Adam Bujak captured a moment. A one of a kind moment. Be it a Holy Mass, a funeral, monthly celebration of Smolensk Catastrophe (commemorating the great tragedy in which President Lech Kaczyński lost his life), a prayer, a procession, or fun that the students are having at their festival, the Juwenalia. The conjunctions of pictures are what fascinates the most, e.g. the comparison of a museum of wonderful art with a museum of modern technology. Or an incredible monument and a hideous – though, in this case, politically quite appropriate – sign on it.

It’s worth to spend a moment of thought over, for example, the sarcophagus belonging to the bountiful polymath Józef Ignacy Kraszewski in the Skałka Monastery, the enormity of Stanisław Wyspiański’s stained glass windows, the wonderful examples of Art Nouveau style in Jama Michalika café, or the fate of the sculptures of Twelve Apostles, when you still have in mind those original ones, lying, mutilated by the previous, communist regime, in the garden of Collegium Broscianum, the place where we were once studying philosophy, geography, sociology in the 1980s.

One can spend hours over this album, taking joy from it and becoming emotional thanks to it. One can also write about it for hours. And, for certain, one should definitely have it and… spread the news about it around. God, grant us a wise local government, Polish diplomacy and cabinet – only then the beauty of Cracow, in many languages, will be granted to thousands… Maybe that shall occur this year, maybe the next. Cracow, urbs celeberrima, is worthy of this effort.

Jedwabne - Świadek Historii: Hieronima Wilczewska (the article available also in English below the movie).

Telewizja Niezależna Polonia dotarła do żyjącego, naocznego świadka niemieckiej zbrodni w Jedwabnem 10 lipca 1941. Pani Hieronima Wilczewska którą ekipa TV Niezależna Polonia odwiedziła we wrześniu 2013 w New Britain, stan Connecticut, USA, w dniu zbrodni w Jedwabnem miała 8 lat. W ciągu 6 dni, przechodząc wielokrotnie lub przystając obok stodoły która stała się miejscem kaźni Żydów z Jedwabnego, pani Hieronima była naocznym świadkiem niemieckiego mordu, tragedii i konania tych ludzi co ciągnęło się przez kilka dni. Zapędzonym przez SS i Gestapo do stodoły Żydom kazano wchodzić i układać się warstwami na sobie z powodu braku miejsca. Niemcy wrzucali następnie małe żydowskie dzieci na sama górę .

Następnie, Niemcy oblali benzyną i podpalili z miotaczy ognia budynek. W ten bestialski sposób zamordowano większość, ale nie wszystkich. Ludzie, znajdujący się na dole, żyli jeszcze przez kilka dni. Pani Hieronima zapamiętała jak kiwali się godzinami, w beznadziejnej rozpaczy, poparzeni i spowici popiołem ze swoich spalonych współbraci, często członków swoich rodzin, z górnych warstw.

Gestapo i SS przez te kilka dni trzymało dookoła stodoły uzbrojone warty, pilnując aby nikt z żyjacych jeszcze jakimś cudem Żydów nie wydostał się ze stodoły oraz uniemożliwiając ludności Jedwabnego przynoszenia im wody czy pożywienia. Po kilku dniach, kiedy wszyscy zmarli z głodu, wycieńczenia czy ran, Niemcy zakopali wszystkie zwłoki na miejscu swojej zbrodni.

Przypisywanie polskim, rzekomo mogącym mieć wtedy jakikolwiek wpływ na cokolwiek dookoła siebie, samej tylko możliwości dokonania zbrodni w tym miasteczku w roku 1941, a więc w czasie trwania na całym terytorium okupowanej przez Niemców Polski totalnej, niemieckiej kontroli i totalnego, bezwzględnego niemieckiego terroru, jest takim samym absurdem jak rozgłaszanie kłamstw o "Polskich Obozach Koncentracyjnych" na terenach tejże, okupowanej przez Niemców Polski.

Wszystkie osoby które, czy to w Polsce, W Kanadzie, W USA czy gdziekolwiek na świecie do dzisiaj uczestniczą w manipulacji i fałszowaniu historii na temat Jedwabnego czy też innych, podobnych konfabulacji, biorą na siebie - również wobec tych nieżyjących już, niewinnych ofiar tej jednej z tysięcy podobnych niemieckich zbrodni w Polsce - odpowiedzialność za współudział w ukrywaniu prawdziwych sprawców tego ludobójstwa oraz odpowiedzialność za współudział w mataczeniu i uniemożliwieniu przeprowadzenia rzetelnego śledztwa wokół tej zbrodni, uniemożliwieniu sprawiedliwego jej osadzenia i uniemożliwieniu napiętnowania, potępienia i ukarania jej prawdziwych sprawców. Choćby i - po latach - symbolicznego, ku pamięci i dla sprawiedliwości przelanej tam niewinnie krwi.

Zbrodnia w Jedwabnem, w 1941 roku na terenie okupowanej przez Niemców Polski, została dokonana przez Niemców, z ich inicjatywy i pod ich całkowitą kontrolą, jak tysiące podobnych zbrodni niemieckich w Polsce i  bez jakiegokolwiek udziału sprawczego jakiegokolwiek Polaka.

Jest rzeczą fizycznie niemożliwą, aby w spowitej terrorem okupowanej Polsce, gdzie na przykład chociażby tylko za samo posiadanie odbiornika radiowego, można było stracić życie w więzieniu, aby polska cywilna ludność miasteczka mogła mieć przy sobie broń, miotacze ognia czy też mogła zorganizować i przeprowadzić na własną rękę jakąkolwiek akcję zbrojną czy pacyfikacyjną bez wiedzy i kontroli Niemców. Osoba propagująca takie absurdy wystawia tylko świadectwo albo o poziomie swojej wiedzy albo wręcz o złej woli lub też o chęci fałszowania historii z sobie tylko wiadomych pobudek i powodów:

Jedwabne Massacre eyewitness testimony: On 10 July 1941 Ms. Hieronima Wilczewska was 8 years old when she saw the massacre in Jedwabne, in German-occupied Poland.

The 1941 massacre in Jedwabne in German-occupied Poland was committed by Germans, on their own initiative and under their sole supervision like thousands of similar German crimes in Poland.

Imputing the commission of this crime to the Polish population of Jedwabne is equally absurd as speaking of "Polish concentration camps".

Considering the German rule of terror in the occupied Poland, where even owning a radio receiver could result in imprisonment and death, it would have been physically impossible for the Polish inhabitants of a town to possess weapons or to be able to organize and independently conduct any armed or pacificatory action without Germans' consent and control.

Dissemination of such absurdities bespeaks their author's ignorance, ill will, or an intent to falsify history based on ulterior motives.

Out of all German-occupied countries, in Poland alone any form of aid extended to people of Jewish descent carried a death sentence. The punishment was dealt out immediately, most often without a trial, not only to the helper but also to his or her entire family.

In other words, the whole family would be stood against the nearest wall and shot.

In this context, and as defined by Germans - “help" meant any assistance, in the broadest sense of the word: from hiding Jews through giving them clothes, food or water. The punishment was carried out on Poles with the utmost severity.

In German-occupied Poland Germans annihilated, in most cases through bestial murders, over 5 million Polish citizens, including over 2,5 million Poles of Jewish descent. Over 2 million Polish non-Jews were subjected to genocide in German concentration and death camps or killed as a result of various forms of terror and repression.

Out of the total of 25,685 people who have to this day been granted the highest civilian award of the State of Israel, i.e. the title of "Righteous Among the Nations" of the Yad Vashem International Institute for Holocaust Research based in Jerusalem, 6,532 were Poles.

The title of "Righteous Among the Nations", the highest civilian award in Israel, is granted in recognition of documented cases where non-Jews risked their lives to help Jews. This means that the State of Israel has acknowledged that, of all the nations engulfed by the war waged by the German Third Reich, out of all 21 German-occupied countries, non-Jewish Poles are credited with as much as 25 percent of all documented cases of aiding Jews at the peril of death to the helper and his or her family. However, it needs to be added that the number of over 6,000 awards is only symbolic. Historical estimates indicate that the total number of Poles engaged in organizing clandestine help for Jews in occupied Poland was as high as 2 million. For instance, securing help for a single Jew in the German-occupied and terrorized country required the concerted, clandestine and life-threatening effort of 20 non-Jewish Poles.

Unique among the occupied countries, both the Polish Underground State during WWII and the Polish Home Army - also unparalleled in the occupied Europe and Asia established official administrative, financial and organizational structures whose task was to help and protect Jews in German-occupied Poland. This was perfectly executed, using all available means in the time of terror and oppression, at the cost of incarceration, bestial torture and death of thousands of non-Jewish Poles at German hands. From the Jewish Department set up specifically to this end in the Department of Information of the Bureau of Information and Propaganda at the Polish Home Army HQ, through the Provisional Committee to Aid Jews, to the Council to Aid Jews operating through the Polish Government Delegation for Poland - this effort was initiated, organized, managed, implemented and led at the peril of death by the clandestine structures of the Polish Underground State and the Home Army (yes, the "anti-Semitic" Home Army - as it is portrayed in some of today's Polish and international "newspapers", "scientific papers", according to "historians", “journalists" or German TV miniseries "Unsere Muetter, Unsere Vaeter" - “Generation War”).

Acting on the order of the Polish Underground State and the Home Army, underground armed forces heroes, like Rittmeister Witold Pilecki, voluntarily infiltrated German death camps to document the decimation of the Polish population and the extermination of Jews. The report, entitled "The Mass Extermination of Jews in German Occupied Poland", was officially introduced to all nations of the world on 10 December 1942, at the League of Nations forum in Washington, and later presented directly, in person, to US President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The message was completely ignored both by the leaders and their nations.
