I Had a Dream…

Monday, March 1st, 2010

Lately there has been a lot of news about the place, or rather places!, where this year’s May 3rd parade will be held. Polonia’s home in Slavic Village has for some time been getting painfully smaller and now will have to adjust to the closing of churches and schools…And then we have an unexpected development – two parades! Someone might say, „Enjoy it! That’s the way it is!” It’s not good, though, because too much of a good thing is just the same as not enough.

After much discussion it has been decided that one Polish parade will be held, in accordance with tradition, in Warszawa (that is, Slavic Village) and a second parade will be held in Parma. It’s a little absurd…unfortunately, our Polonia is not able to hide its divisions or, rather, its chronic dismemberment. The saying, „where there are two Poles, there are three parties” has not lost its significance but rather gathered strength. We might say today that where there is one Pole, there are two parades.

My introduction to the Polish American Cultural Center

Monday, March 5th, 2007

My introduction to the Polish American Cultural Center came in the form of an exhibition opening.  As part of my job, coordinator of the SPACES World Artists Program at SPACES gallery, I was hosting Polish artist Roman Dziadkiewicz.  I wanted Roman to learn about Cleveland and to better understand what it means to be part of a Polish community in the United States. Also, he had been forced to speak and write in English for weeks, and we both needed some help. Roman and I were warmly welcomed to the opening of the Polish-Hungarian exhibition, documenting the relationship between the two peoples over many, many years. While Roman found solace in other Polish artists, I was moved by the openness of the Polish Center to welcome another community through its doors. (more…)

From Wrocław to Case, Akron, and Slavic Village

Tuesday, February 1st, 2005

Magda Staniszewska conducts biochemical research in aging and diabetes. In 2003 she received an invitation to continue her research at Case Western Reserve University. In July of the same year Magda and her husband Marcin packed up and left their native Wrocław to move to Cleveland. During the month after their arrival they began looking for a Polish community. Thanks to the Internet they found St. Stanislaus and „discovered” Slavic Village. Their first contact was Father Jerzy Kusy. Through him, they found out about a meeting of Polish Americans in the Polish Cultural Garden on Martin Luther King Boulevard. There they met Alicja Chwals and Ben Stefański. (more…)

A walk through Slavic Village

Monday, November 1st, 2004

Slowly, but surely a new face of Slavic Village is born. All you have to do is look around. So many restored buildings, with the best example being the Polish American Cultural Center. It is so nice to look at it without shame, and hear someone say: “Unbelievable, such a nice place in the Warsaw district?” However, more beautiful does not necessarily mean safer, but …that will change too, just as the surroundings have changed. Not long ago an acquaintance told me that he is buying a house. His answer to the typical question “where?” was, “You will laugh, but in the Warsaw district.” Maybe this sounds strange, but “He’s not stupid – I thought – he has no children, the prices are lower here than anywhere else, taxes too, and the place is becoming more attractive, and everything is so close.” One can say that there are only positives here.
