How do you expect an Armenian ... community in Poland????? In Europe alone, Armenian communities are in France (largest community, over 1 million), then in Germany, Italy and The Netherlands.

Check out
commonwealth.pl

There is history about the first republic, Armenians are mentioned there (Ormianie)

There is a small Armenian population in Poland (30-40,000 of which around a quarter have lived here for generations and are assimilated) several parishes and other Armenian language religious groups and some famous Poles (Penderecki, Slowacki etc) had Armenian roots.

A correction to the post above (too late to edit). The last census included 3,623 people who declared themselves as Armenian however online I've just noticed an estimate of 40-80,000. An accurate figure is doubtless somwhere between. BTW, Zbigniew Herbert apparently had Armenian roots, something I hadn't heard.

There is hardly a place in the world without some Armenian community. They tend to have a positive influence wherever they settle.

I have an Armenian friend in Warsaw and according to him there are many Armenians around here, some have been here for several generations and some have arrived recently. However there is no "official" Armenian Orthodox Church in Warsaw (according to him) but mass is offered at several places in Armenian.

By the way - what do you mean by 100 years of genocide? (I assume you meant 100 years since the...)

And exactly whom are you referring to by "pontiacs"?

Well the photos and.history from that period do not hold well for our Turkish friends. I am not sure wtf one has to do to classify it as genocide. Turkeys denials are ridiculous. One thing is for sure, they failed to silence the Armenians who still have a voice.

I know an Armenian woman in Warsaw, she and her boyfriend (Polish) are quite often in my local bar.

Will be there any protest about the 100 years of the Turkish genocide agains the Armenians/Assyrians/Pontiacs?

Her best friend here is a Turkish woman (they started going to the bar in question to meet the Turkish woman), so she might not be too interested in any such protest. But I can certainly ask if you'd like me to. I do know that she's interested in that general topic, a few months ago she was telling me about some work she does for an organisation called International Survival which was formed in the 1960s as a response to the genocide that was being committed against and is still being committed against the indigenous peoples of the Amazon basin.

Merged: Are most Poles Armenian?

According to this article in as early as the 11th century there were 50,000 Armenians living in Poland through intermarriage and conversions is it possible that most Poles especially east Poland have at least one Armenian ancestor , i also read somewhere that the suffix icz is from Armenian
