VIDEO - Real solid information about communist agents in Polonia
Polish American Congress starts American Polonia renewal
See the reality of communist agents in Polonia. Not a "witch hunt",
nor imaginary subject. Very harsh reality of Polonia being infiltrated
by communist agents and Polish equivalent of KGB functionaries. One
of the first videos made with cooperation with Institute of National
Remembrance in Poland.
To watch the video go to http://www.PoloniaSF.org and click on
the "NEW" link by the movie camera icon in the middle of the page.
Pick the long or short version.
Krzysztof Kieslowski's ten-part Decalogue, each film based on
one of the Ten Commandments, and his Three Colors trilogy, formed
around the symbolism of the French flag, earned him international
acclaim for their ambition and scope, while his early Polish films
stand as testaments to the power of a socially committed cinema.
[ .......... ]
The Pacific Film Archive is proud to present an almost complete
retrospective—including rarely screened early documentaries and
shorts—of this director whose reputation has only grown since
his untimely death ten years ago. “To call Kieslowski the premier
filmmaker of the last two decades seems hardly enough,” wrote
The Los Angeles Times. “Without him, the international film
scene . . . is definitely a sadder and lonelier place.”

I am hoping Polonia will be able to help to restore the publication
of Tygodnik Kalifornijski. If they get 200 more subscriptions they,
I think, will be able to continue. In addition, I am proposing to
establish a publishing fund within a Polish non profit organization
or by TK itself. TK could dedicate a small space to list donations
as "Fundusz Wydawniczy" and publish how it is being spend. I am sure
some of you and hopefully your friends will help. Personally, I have
known Pawel Krupa as an extremely honest individual, so I have
no problem with him managing such fund. I hope he will earn the
trust of many more people who would contribute to keep the Tygodnik
afloat. Please send your money now. Hopefully Tygodnik can resume
soon. I am sending them directly $100. Please do the same.
If you have any ideas how to help, please contact TK directly at:

Looking for help in translating from Polish to English
From: "arvind acharya"
Hello Mr. Lewandowski
I got your information via your website. I am helping a good friend
of mine from Poland , Wes (Wieslaw) Sokolowski, who is deaf and
applying for his US Citizenship. As part of his application he
has to submit his marriage certificate which is in Polish.
Since US Immigration documents have to be in English can you direct
me to a person who can translate this one-page marriage certificate
in English. He is currently unemployed and will appreciate any
assistance from you or your organization for this translation.
If you have any questions, please call me at 1-510-719-6858
Thanks very much
How to call overseas for pennies per minute
PLEASE SUPPORT POLONIASF.ORG BY PURCHASING CALLING CARDS THERE
We tested many calling cards which are available at http://www.PoloniaSF.org
To get them you need to click on the card picture in the upper
left corner. You will see many cards to pick from. They all deliver
superb quality, but the differences are in maintenance fees, taxes
and access numbers. Some of the cards can be used from Poland, few
can be used with a web interface, where you can connect any two
phones in the world. That way you can call from Poland to US for
just 5 cents per minute - card CONTINENTAL. There is no connection
fee on any card.
Here are other recommendations depending on your calling pattern:
CHEAP STREET - Frequent and long calls - effective rate (including
taxes and maintenance fee) 1.5 to 2.5 cents per minute
JUPITER - Infrequent calls, can call from Canada and Russia -
effective rate (no maintenance fee, including taxes
and rounding) 2.5 - 3.0 cents per minute
BIZON - Infrequent calls - can call from many countries in
Europe, but not Poland - effective rate (as above)
3.5 to 3.8 cents per minute - INCLUDING ALL TAXES!!!
The best thing is that there is no obligation to continue, no phone
hookup. Complete freedom.
PoloniaSF.org receives 10% of the commission. Currently it amounts
to few dollars per month. The funds help to offset the expenses the
volunteers pay in order to run the web site. Please help by asking
your friends to purchase the calling cards at http://www.PoloniaSF.org
