Poland - 100 Years - Free Again - Celebrate

On November 11, 1918, the guns of World War I fell silent. The three imperial powers that had dominated Poland for nearly two centuries, eventually carving it up and devouring it for themselves, lay defeated or in disarray. The way was clear for the rebirth of Poland as a modern nation, for the white eagle to soar free of the black eagles that had plagued it for so long.
