I'm doing a project on Poland at my University and eventually hoping to hold any type of event that portrays Poland's best assets wether it be funny traditions, laws and beliefs or products that have been invented that we all use - absolutely ANYTHING that I can hold an event with? Can anyone give me any idea where to start?

Please email me on aelingard@gmail

Thanks and regards - Amy Lingard

This may not be the place to start, but could be one element to include in the event....

Make the toilets pay per use. All monies collected could go towards a charity that your organization supports.

Why Poland is special ?
Because she exists and still is more free than another country in Europe.

Poland's best assets

Amber is plentyful in Poland

Amber (Bursztyn in Polish) is fossilized tree sap that dates back 40 million years. It comes from all around the world, but the highest quality and richest deposits are found around the Baltic Sea. During the colder months, when water density reaches its highest point, amber floats up from the seabed and is washed to shore by the waving sea. Amber is the only fossil resin that contains 3 to 8% succinic acid, a multi-purpose therapeutic substance, that was prescribed by early physicians for headaches, heart problems, arthritis and a variety of other ailments. In ancient times it was carried by travellers for protection. All of our amber is directly imported from the Baltic city of Gdansk, Poland.

Wow I didnt even know they used it for headaches, I wonder if it actually worked for that?

anyways, thought this was a good start :)

good luck to you

Oh dear.

They still use it for upset stomachs and sore throats, dissolved in vodka.

Another thing that's special is that Poland (Konin in Western Poland to be exact) is the geographical centre of Europe, if you take the western edge to be the Portugese coast and the eastern edge to be the eastern side of the Urals. There is a marker post to commemorate it.

products that we all use

May be some Polish and Polish Jewish bacground actors and actress, like:
Scarlett Johannson, Adrien Brody, Gwyneth Paltrow, Juliette Binoche, Natalie Portman, Harvey Keitel, Lauren Bacall, Tea Leoni, Jane Seymour, Jesse Eisenberg, Shia LaBeouf and many many others. Also Hollywood creators like Goldwyn Meyer, Warner brothers, Billy Wilder, etc.

They had parents, grand parents, or great grand parents in Poland or they were emigrants theirselves. Sometimes they inherit names (Paltrowicz, Kajtel) and sometimes not. They often use nicknames like actress Stefanie Powers (Stefania Federkiewicz) or Marilyn Manson - a musican with Polish-German roots.
