Polish-Australian Historical Group

The newly established Polish–Australian Historical Group is going to concentrate on research into the history of Poles from 1840s to today in the Illawarra/Sholheaven area. This history is rich in stories of early Polish settlers, post World War II displaced Poles, and post Solidarity movement 1980s migrants as well as many who came between.

They all significantly contributed to the social, economical and cultural life of the area. Their stories are very often forgotten, but when discovered they are fascinating. All who would like to join the group or contribute with information/photos are invited to come to the meetings or just contact the Polish As- sociation of Wollongong.

Meetings: 2nd Thursday of each month at 6:00pm
