Description
 
The end of World War II found a devastated Poland under Soviet occupation. Many Poles—those displaced to work camps in Germany, those in German concentration and P.O.W. camps, and those still in Poland made the decision to immigrate to the United States. Their journey, however, would not be easy. The rigors of the war had affected America as well, and immigration laws were strict. Fortunately, many Polish refugees received help from the Polish American Immigration and Relief Committee (PAIRC). Founded in 1947 to help Polish citizens displaced by World War II, the committee continued its work as the postwar period became the Cold War era and Poles continued to flee the communist regime.

Janusz Cisek is a professor at the chair of European Studies, Jagiellonian University, formerly Deputy Mayor of his hometown Stalowa Wola and Deputy Director of the Department of International Relations and European Integration at the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage in Warsaw, Poland. He is the author of Kosciuszko, We Are Here! (2002) and also resides in New York City. Translator Albert S. Juszczak teaches Polish at New York University in New York City and is the former President of the Kosciuszko Foundation.
