Since 1608, when the first Polish settlers arrived at Jamestown, VA, Polish people
have been an important part of America's history and culture. In 2016, Polish
Americans will mark the 35th Anniversary of the founding of
Polish American Heritage Month, an
event which began in Philadelphia, PA, and became a national celebration of Polish history, culture and pride. There is always something happening in the Polish American community across the United States. It's great to see that Polish American history and pride are well represented in the
Great Mosaic of America."

Genealogy search turns Peculiar, book club discussion
PolishYoungstown is co-hosting a book club discussion with the

protagonist's search for information about his Polish grandfather's
life brings him to Miss Peregrine's home. This book has also been
selected as one of the books on the reading list for the 2017 YSU English

Transforming Cities thru Art
We are proud to welcome to the Mahoning Valley
Dr. Leslaw Tetla
, the Fall Semester 2016 Cleveland

Katowice, Poland where he is the dean of the
Academy of Fine Arts. His specialty is painting (but he originally studied architecture). His work can be
viewed at his
website.  However in the last few years, he has been heavily involved in TRANSFORMATIONAL ART. The Academy also
undertakes a number of activities to promote the idea of sustainable design and its
impact on the quality of life and work of the local communities. A significant
initiative in this field was the
Design Silesia project, focusing primarily on the public
sector. Based on his active participation in the efforts in Katowice, he will talk about

what it takes to transform an industrial
area into the city of culture
familiar Youngstown?). For example, Katowice is the first Polish city to join UNESCO's
Creative Cities Network as a city of music. Dr. Tetla will be speaking to art students at Youngstown
State University during the day and holding a public conversation in the

News from Poland
Polish women strike for Abortion right
Tens of thousands of Polish women missed work on
Monday to protest a proposed law that would totally
ban abortions in the predominantly Catholic country.
According to the Guardian citing the strike's Facebook event post, the protest is inspired by a similar
movement in Iceland during the 1970s, in which
women refused to work and perform domestic duties
in order to draw the country's attention to wage gaps and larger problems of gender
inequality.  Learn more
