The US embassy in Warsaw has launched celebrations of the centennials of Poland regaining independence and the establishment of US-Polish diplomatic relations.
The embassy initiated its celebrations of these anniversaries on Wednesday and said it as well as the US consulate general in the southern city of Kraków would continue to commemorate these milestone dates in both Poland and the United States in the coming months.
Poland regained independence on November 11, 1918, the day World War I ended, after 123 years of partition by Russia, Austria and Prussia. The country established diplomatic relations with the United States in 1919.
“These anniversaries provide opportunities for both countries to celebrate these momentous events together and to renew and strengthen people-to-people ties by highlighting our shared histories, shared values, and cooperation,” the US embassy said.
It added that it would send diplomats to cities in each province across Poland to meet and interact with Poles and celebrate the two anniversaries together.
"Each event will include presentations by diplomats on the past 100 years of US-Polish relations followed by a cake cutting," the embassy said on its website.
