Virtual Film Screening & Discussion

“Memory Is Our Homeland”

Date: Thursday, February 10, 2022

Time: 6:30pm – 8:00PM ET

Zoom opens at 6:15pm ET

Join us to commemorate the 82nd anniversary of the deportations of Polish citizens to Siberia during WWII

Registration required: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZIsde-oqzMuHdDbVT0rEBvXN40UFTV3MYcI

To commemorate this anniversary, we will screen a 45 minute version of the award-winning documentary film “Memory Is Our Homeland” by Canadian director Jonathan Kołodziej Durand.

Through the recollections of his grandmother and other survivors, the film recounts Soviet deportation to the gulags, the odyssey of tens of thousands of survivors who were relocated to East Africa via Iran and India, and questions the nature of identities rooted in exile and trauma.

The screening will be followed by a discussion.

Survivors of the deportations and their families are encouraged to participate.

PAM Dom Polski Inauguration

27.10.2018

Montréal

We want to share with you, photos and video of the community mural project titled LILIA, a “mural” made by the artist of Polish descent, Mr. Krzysztof Wilk. which was unveiled on Saturday, October 27 at the White Eagle Polish Society building.

It is a gift from the city of Montreal, which incurred the cost of this screening for the Montreal Polonia on the occasion of the 100th anniversary celebration of Poland’s recovery of independence. The mural depicts the integration of the Montréal Polish community within Canadian-Quebec culture and also celebrates the local community that lives near the wall.

This is the only such gift in Canada for the Polish community to-date … and we are very proud of it!

Our thanks to all the parties involved : Mr. Krzysztof Wilk and his team of supporters, Ville de Montréal, Arrondissement de Ville-Marie, centre-ville, Bureau d’art public Montréal, Éco-quartier Sainte-Marie, Kolab, The White Eagle Polish Society and all the citizens and community members that contributed to the project.
