My Sister's Mother: A Memoir of War, Exile, and Stalin's Siberia with Danuta Urbikas

Sulzer Regional

Description

Outside of Warsaw, Chicago has the largest Polish population, but as assimilation and integration extends to 3rd and 4th generations, much of that culture has been lost, mingled with others, or persists in the staunchest ways. Learn about the challenges of Polish immigration from the early 1800's to the present, discover the various centers of Polish and Polish-American culture and some of the traditions of Polish culture, as well as history. Presented by former teacher and author Donna Urbikas, who immigrated to Chicago as a child and grew up in the Polish community of the 1950's and 1960's, as highlighted in her recent award-winning memoir, My Sister's Mother: A Memoir of War, Exile, and Stalin's Siberia.
