A BIG THANK YOU everyone at The Polish Weekly – Tydzien Polski for making me their cover girl this week ! I’m so excited to be on the front cover #tydzienpolski Thank you so much to everyone for supporting my wonderful concert in Edinburgh dedicated to all the heroes and heroines of #Poland WWII. Thank you to Magdalena Grzymkowska – Editorial Executive at the Polish Weekly for her wonderful article. I performed songs inspired by Polish 🇵🇱 Scottish 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 friendship and my own family connections to Scotland.

Singing ‘The Skye Boat Song’ inspired me to think about my heroine Maria Clementina Sobieska who was a Polish noblewomen and mother of Bonnie Prince Charlie and granddaughter of King Sobieski won the Battle of Vienna stopping the advancement of the Ottoman Empire advancing into Europe in 1683.

The caption reads ‘ Katy Carr’s concert in Edinburgh – I was singing for General Maczek’.

Lieutenant General Stanisław Maczek (31 March 1892 – 11 December 1994) was a Polish tank commander of World War II, whose division was instrumental in the Allied liberation of France, closing the Falaise pocket, resulting in the destruction of 14 German Wehrmacht and SS divisions. A veteran of World War I, the Polish–Ukrainian and Polish–Soviet Wars, Maczek was the commander of Poland’s only major armoured formation during the September 1939 campaign, and later commanded a Polish armoured formation in France in 1940. He was the commander of the famous 1st Polish Armoured Division, and later of the I Polish Army Corps under Allied Command in 1942–45.
