No local group has been more effective at reawakening ethnic pride than Polish Youngstown. The organization, spearheaded by Aundrea Cika Hesch-myer, has rallied younger Polish-Americans with a stream of events such as Polish Happy Hour, which features beer and vodka imported from the old country. Cika says it had to be done, because the culture was fading among the younger generation, and with it would go the heritage that unites Pol... Read more...

Thanks for the opportunity at the Swieconka workshop.  Had a fullhouse every session except the last, but I think everyone went away with several projects and the desire to do them at home.  The Kielbasa/Favorki session went very well and all were amazed that they could make their own in a short period of time in their own home.  It was also great to see everyone both old and...

I wanted to forward a very, in my opinion, valuable piece of information to all friends and relatives of Polish citizens who were in Poland during WWII. Last year, I was given the name and website/email address of the "International Tracing Service" in Germany.  A young German student generously gave me the address upon discovering that I was searching for records of my Polish Family during and immediately after WWII.  I also wanted to know if there were records of their time in t...

Dear Aundrea and all the wonderful, dedicated people at Polish Youngstown who have been involved in this resurrection of Polonia,From a Cleveland suburb, I had witnessed the glory days of solid ethnic neighborhoods, where conversations were heard in native tongue. Stores had ethnic products, and churches and halls had related music. I know Cleveland and feel this is now impossible there. However, what you and yours have accomplished is beyond belief and frequently flushes ... Read more...
