We are very excited to be hosting a 70th Anniversary Commemorative Event with the Polish Ambassador at the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Canberra tonight. It thanks the nations who helped Poland in 1942 with the exodus of the exiles from Russia to Persia and beyond. We have over 25 Ambassadors attending, including Mr Paul Madden the British High Commissioner.
We will be playing the 17 minute edit of "A Forgotten Odyssey" film. Our wonderful and inspiring Kresy-Siberia member Frank Kustra will be making a speech. Frank is Syberiak and veteran of the Polish 2nd Corps, serving at Monte Cassino. You can see his survivor testimony on the virtual museum. Frank will also be featuring in the upcoming exhibit on the virtual museum which features 16 veterans from the Polish 2nd Corps.

We will put photographs following the event on the Kresy-Siberia facebook page.
