Thank you to Barbara Czyznikowska and her team who organised the Polish Heritage Day Celebration on 6th May in Leicester.

A BIG THANK YOU WARSAW : and the Night of the Museums 🙂
It was amazing to perform at the Night of the Museum at the Warsaw Court House : Naczelny Sąd Administracyjny, ul. Gabriela Piotra Boduena, Warszawa and to perform with the Polish Military choir – if any of you have photos from this event please forward them to me and i will publish them – and it was inspiring to meet musicians including Maria Dubik who played excellent piano pieces from Paderewski and Chopin. I was inspired by the stories and history she was telling me about the Polish community in her region of the Ukraine who had been abandoned post WWII who had to lose their Polish passports due to Stalin’s Iron Curtain and Communist regime. It was heart breaking to see the pictures of the Polish victims who had experienced gross human cruelty during this era and the bones of them that have still not been buried and blessed RIP. I wish that we can cooperate on a project in the future.
THANK YOU : to the artists @dulcimerdraws for inviting me to a drawing sessions and to archivist Claire Norman for making this possible. Here are some of the images that came out of Katy in the session !
REST IN PEACE
RIP MAMUSIA – Krystyna ‘Kasia’ Zofia Poprawska-Carr (née Goryl) R.I.P
Thank you so much for all your letters and gestures of support with regards the very sad loss of my beloved Polish mother and mamusia RIP . I am, as you can imagine completely devastated and the passing of my mother from physical into spirit world has been a very deep and emotional time for me and all of my family. My mother’s funeral in the UK was blessed by Father ks. Kanonik Krzysztof Tyliszczak and took place at the Polish Catholic Church at Devonia in Islington, London – Kościół pw. Matki Boskiej Częstochowskiej 2 Devonia Rd, London on 6th April by Father ks. Kanonik Krzysztof Tyliszczak who was wonderful and I thank him from the bottom of my heart for conducting such a wonderful service of remembrance for my mamusia RIP.
