Congratulation to all who worked hard to obtain the "grant" and all who will add their individual support to our cause.

WARSAW. Kresy-Siberia was awarded a grant today for 40,000 zloty (US $13,000) under the Polish History Museum's "Patriotizm Jutra" (Patriotism of Tomorrow) program competition for 2012. Kresy-Siberia's "Heroes of Anders Army" oral history project will seek to interview Anders Army Survivors and capture their unique stories in the Kresy-Siberia Virtual Museum www.kresy-siberia.org
This win is a credit to the efforts of dedicated staff members Aneta Hoffmann and Krystyna Szypowska, writing this and other grant proposals while working at partial wages due to our 2012 funding shortfalls. With our volunteer directors (Lucyna Artymiuk, Eugene Bak, Louise Blazejowska, Marek Chodakiewicz, Robert Czernkowski, Krystyna Freiburger, Linder Ladbrooke, Witold Lukaszewski, Jurek Neisser, Henry Sokolowski, Eva Szegidewicz, Maria Szonert and Mirka Wojnar) and other group members, they continue to seek funding needed in 2012 for the Kresy-Siberia Group, the Survivor Testimony interview program and Virtual Museum website.
As Kresy-Siberia Foundation President, I know that we can get the remaining funding we need for 2012 to continue commemorating Polish citizens' struggles for freedom in the Kresy and in forced exile during WW2. This includes the all-important 2012 Memberships and Donations from Kresy-Siberia Group Members, because we need to put some of our own money in to qualify for the external grants.
