National Independence Day

While US celebrates Veterans Day Poland celebrates its National Independence Day.

Happy Re-Birth Day! 

On November 11, 1918 an armistice with Germany (originally Nov. 11 was an Armistice Day) was signed in a railroad carriage at Compiègne. On the same day Poles have decided to take their fate into their own hands.

On that day (Nov. 11) the secret departments of the Polish Military Organisation, demobilized soldiers, legionnaires and young people, disarmed the Germans in Warsaw and other Polish towns. The Regency Government, formed on Nov. 6th, appointed Józef Pilsudski Commander-in-Chief over the Polish Forces.
