The year 2018 marked the 100th anniversary of the regaining of independence by Poland. During this special time we recalled the aspirations of the Poles who strove for the regaining of independence for a period of 123 years, both those who took up arms and those who were involved in the organicist activities.

In the year 1918, the dreams of our ancestors were no longer just aspirations but became a reality. Many people and circles participated in the fight for free Poland; it was a joint effort across all divides, an exceptional example of which was the participation of the Greater Poland residents in the victorious Greater Poland Uprising.

On the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the Greater Poland Uprising, in reference to the glorious traditions of organic work and combining the efforts of various circles, scientific and cultural institutions, a thematic website which commemorates this great historical event has now been launched in English.

A particular feature of this website is its open form which allows for the publication of new materials. The addition of those materials will be continued in the context of future anniversaries. Of particular concern to the founders of the portal is the care and maintenance of its high quality, therefore, the Programme Council has been appointed for this purpose. 

We would like to encourage you to use this website, we believe that it will become an important tool in the process of education and at the same time will contribute to the popularisation and commemoration of the heroic acts of the Greater Poland residents.
