The Niziol Family Fund



Sebastian passed away suddenly earlier this week. His unexpected death has broken our hearts, and left his family devastated. 

Sebastian was only 37 and was a very active member of our Polish community working as a volunteer at SPFF, PHA where he was a Treasurer and Board member for number of years and a President of Seattle-Gdynia Sister City Association.


Many people have asked how they can help and it is our hope that by bringing this tragedy to the attention of friends and loved ones we will be able to raise the necessary funds to support Patrycja and Stas at the difficult time and help with Stas's future.

Share Shipping Cost of a Container from Warsaw


My friend and I are looking for someone to share the cost of a shipping container from Warsaw to Seattle soon (July-August). We are sending personal effects from Poland, and don't have enough to fill an entire container. The cost of other shipping means is prohibitive, since we are sending relatively a lot.  There would be for example half a container available. The entire container costs 14,000 zł to send (currently about $3800). As I understand it, even cars can be sent by container.

 Learning Polish on the internet

Learning Polish on the internet


Please read info about Libratus schools and Polish government proposals posted on the FAQ page.


Below there is some info about learning Polish with help of internet as recommended by Readers or  submitted to the Editor by different educational outfits.




Reader recommended free podcasts and paid subscriptions with Piotr.

Seems great for Polish-Americans, that is people who know the language somewhat,

understand more, speak less and would like to take it to the next level.

In small daily chunks, regular readings etc.
