On the 11th of November 11 Poland celebrates its national holiday – Independence Day. On this day a lecture on the topic «Famous Poles – students of Kyiv educational institutions» will be held as a part of the series of historical studies «Think about it».
In the late XIX – early XX century a significant part of the population of Kyiv and Kyiv region were ethnic Poles. Many of them studied in Kyiv – at the University of St. Volodymyr, Polytechnic and Commercial Institutes, local gymnasiums and other educational institutions. Among them were well-known Polish public figures, scientists, writers, artists.
Several of the most famous names , such as Vyacheslav Lypynsky, Tadeusz Dołęga-Mostowicz, Bolesław Leśmian, Jarosław Iwaszkiewicz and others, will be mentioned during a lecture given by a well-known Kyiv historian, a graduate of Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, a longtime friend of our library – Mykhailo Kalnytskyi.
