Polska? Tak!

This first post after a long break is a rather impressive video produced by the Public and Diplomacy Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Poland.

It features a whole host of Hollywood A-listers and other celebs – from Natalie Portman to Russell Crowe, from Robert Redford and Tom Hanks to Daniel Radcliffe and Linda Evangelista – talking about one subject. Poland.

Whether it’s their families, their impressions of Poland, architecture, co-workers or the “crazy” things those Poles do (yes, Russell Crowe, I’m looking at you) – everyone has a Polish story to share in this promotional video the Ministry posted on YouTube.

A lot of that is archive material, but you’ll be surprised how many people have some sort of family or other connection with Poland. Unless you already knew that, in which case this will only reinforce your suspicions ;)

Pretty impressive stuff in any case.

  1. The thing about that video is that the interviews were collected over a long time…years…by Roman Rogowiecki, someone who works as a PR contact for film stars etc working in Poland or on protects connected with the country. Word has it that the people in the interviews had not given permission for their comments to be used by the Foreign Ministry as they were unaware of what they would be used for. So it left the MSZ as a potential target for law suits…allegedly. Ooops!

  2. What I remember and know about being Polish is our ability to go on after we should have lost all hope. I love our endurance and our refusal to ever give up.
