Poland marks its Independence Day on November 11. But the Polish diaspora lives in various corners of the world and wherever Poles live, the holiday is celebrated.
The United States is home to the largest Polish community outside of Poland. On the occasion, the distinguished members of the Polish-American community received honours for outstanding merit during a ceremony in the Polish consulate in NYC.
In spite of the ongoing war in Ukraine, the holiday was also celebrated by the Polish community in Lviv, Western Ukraine. And in the UK, which is also home to a large Polish diaspora, the Polish embassy in London held celebrations at the Polish Hearth Club.
