Polish Independence Day
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 

The Polish Independence Day (Narodowe Święto Niepodległości) was established in 1937 to celebrate the restoration of Polish sovereign state after 123 years of partition by Russia, Germany and Austria - and pay tribute to all those who fought for independent Poland. The date was chosen to commemorate an anniversary of November 11, 1918 proclamation of the Second Polish Republic (II Rzeczpospolita) in the aftermath of World War I.
