100 years of Poland

100 years ago Poland became once again an independent state, after years of partitition among the neighboring powers. 1918 was the year when Poland came back on the map of Europe. Hundred years later, it still feels like a dream that should not be taken for granted.

At noon on 11th of November, on Polish Independence Day, all are invited to sing the national anthem, both on Piłsudski square in Warsaw, together with the representatives of the Republic of Poland, or locally in Poland and abroad.

Poland Has Not Yet Perished was officially adopted as the national anthem of the Republic of Poland in 1926, but was written by Józef Wybicki in 1727. It says that as long as we, Polish people live, Poland has not yet perished.
