On November 11, the Poles celebrated the hundredth anniversary of regaining Independence after 123 years of Russian, German and Austro-Hungarian annexation. On this occasion many events took place. In my report, I present images from four of them:
- the Independence Run,
- the national anthem singing on Piłsudski Square,
- the Antifa march, which gathered about 70 people and
- the Independence March in which over 250,000 people took part.
This post is for my friend who has Polish roots. This Polish tradition is a great fun for kids.

When baskets are ready we take them to church to bless.
