Please join us for the musical birthday celebration for Tadeusz Kosciuszko at the Kosciuszko Foundation in New York! The event will feature a presentation by the Foundation’s Chairman, Alex Storozynski, author of "The Peasant Prince. Thaddeus Kosciuszko and the Age of Revolution," and director of the documentary film "Kosciuszko: A Man ahead of his Time" and a recital by duo Karolina Mikolajczyk, violin, and Iwo Jedynecki, accordion followed by a wine reception.
Tadeusz Kosciuszko (1746 – 1817) is one of the most important figures of the modern world, and a national hero in Poland and the United States. He was a Polish general, military engineer, and freedom fighter who fought in the American Revolutionary War and led a valiant but ultimately unsuccessful uprising against Poland’s partition by Russia and other foreign powers. A lifelong champion of the common man and woman, he was ahead of his time in advocating tolerance and standing up for the rights of slaves, Native Americans, women, serfs, and Jews.
