50 Years of the JU School of Polish Language and Culture
The celebrations surrounding the 50th anniversary of the School culminated in a meeting held on Saturday, September 28, 2019, in Przegorzały – first in the auditorium, and then in the adjacent restaurant. Professor Waldemar Martyniuk, Director of the Center for Polish Language and Culture in the World, opened the event, and invited all guests to a concert by a former student, François Martineau, who – accompanied by Mateusz Gurgul – performed several songs in French and in perfect Polish, while conducting a very amusing dialogue with the audience. Dessi Christozowa, a former Polish language teacher, performed a "Summer School" adaptation of "Summertime, and the livin’ is easy...", which was enthusiastically received.
