WARSAW, POLAND – On May 3rd, 1791, the Polish constitution was signed granting the people freedom of speech and religion.  

The constitution was signed in Warsaw, Poland, and was a big part of Poland becoming an independent nation from countries such as Russia. It was one of the first signed constitutions in Europe and second in the world right after the United States.

This memorable holiday is celebrated each year through numerous parades, food, and concerts featuring Polish music. Throughout this holiday, many Poles hang up Polish flags on their homes and in the cities to represent the freedoms that they were granted on that day.

Many government officials also gather in Warsaw, where they hold ceremonies in remembrance of the Constitution. This holiday has a special meaning for Poles, a meaning of freedom and gratitude, one that will last for many years to come.

About the Contributor
Julian Trzesniowski
Class of 2027 Student Journalist
Julian Trzesniowski is a journalist, a part of the student publications here at JCS. He moved here to the US from Poland 6 years ago and from then has been at work persuing a better education than he could have ever gotten back home. Living in Poland, he experienced the good and the bad of the community, and seeing how people can end up if they choose to go down the wrong path, he became aware of his friends and the ways they could lead him. Moving from Warsaw, Poland was very difficult for Julian, as he knew little to no English and was used to the culture that he was surrounded with in Europe. Seeking to fit into this community, he has been drawn closer to God through the many great teachers and staff at here at JCS. But as years passed, he began to miss what life was like back home, not knowing the reason why this change was for the better of his future. Over time, he saw all the great opportunities he had ahead of him and became grateful for what his parents had done for him. He then became known to this culture and soon grew into the great journalist he is today.
