Armistice Day with The Auckland Polish Association, Gazeta Polonia and the Polish Tramping Club
Remembering WWI – 100 years later, in 2018.

Celebrate with Polish Community the end of WW I and Polish Independence Day - “Tomorrow freedom will come”.

On 11 November 1918, 100 years ago, after four brutal years of war, the First World War finally ended with the signing of an armistice between the Allied Powers and Germany in Compiegne Forest near Paris. New Zealand celebrated enthusiastically – “on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month the guns famously went silent”.

On that day Poland proclaimed independence after 123 years of non-existence on the political map.
Come and celebrate with us the centennial of the end of WW I and of Poland regaining independence.
