U Jarka restaurant included in short film
Two short films made in association with Fablevision Studios and the BBC were
recently previewed in our club. The Poland Connection
This BBC Scotland programme looks at what makes Poles decide to come to Scotland,
shows the historical links between Poland and Scotland and gives a flavour of
both countries. This film will soon be shown on TV Wee Poland
This film follows the lives of four different Polish people in Glasgow who all
hold on to their culture and heritage in different ways. Through them we learn
about a family business, the importance of language, cultural traditions and textile
design. Clips from this film are now available on the BBC's LAB
of the clips is about Mateusz and the family restaurant in the Sikorski
club (see below - opens in a new window). Other clips available include "Agata
and the Polish Saturday School", "Basia and family traditions"
and "Marta and the fashion show".

Lord Fraser's campaign for a memorial to General Maczek
The 29th March 2013 saw the launch of the campaign in Edinburgh to recognise Maczek's
vital contribution to the UK and Allied Forces in what became his home town.
Speaking at the Launch at the New Club in Edinburgh's Princes Street, Lord Fraser
stated that the U.K. and Scotland in particular owe a debt of gratitude to the
great General Maczek and our lack of acknowledgement of him over nearly 60 years
has not been honourable. He reminded the guests how he was asked by the British
Government to be their representative at the Requiem Mass for General Maczek in
Edinburgh in December 1994. Further details and links at http://www.polishforcesinbritain.info/PolonicaGeneralMaczek.htm

Scottish Council of
Jewish Communities hold event in our club Members
of the Glasgow Jewish community joined regulars and local musicians at the Sikorski
Polish Club for the next stage of their Klezmatize ceilidh
tour, to share their Polish connections, and experiences of Being
Jewish in Scotland.
Martin Stepek has
written this astonishing poem which is at once a monument, a meditation, a prayer
and an epic. It is a memorial or monument, in the first place, to the fate of
his Polish family in the 1940s, a fate they shared with hundreds of thousands
of Polish civilians deported to the Gulag or the Asian wastes by the Soviet invaders
in 1940. It is a meditation on life and death; his grandfather died as a Resistance
fighter against the Nazis, while his grandmother survived her escape from the
Soviet Union by only a few months. Their children survived the war and settled
in Scotland; they used to the full the chance of a long life in a peaceful country,
but now they in turn are approaching their end. Martin's father Jan, a leading
figure in Scotland's Polish community, died almost as this book was going to press.
The memory of what they experienced and survived must not disappear with that
generation. An extract from the Foreword by Neal Ascherson
can be purchased from www.ettadunn.com
or through Amazon. Our Society will also have copies available - please ask
at the bar. Paperback: 128 pages Publisher: Fleming Publications (14 Nov
