Polonia: Polish in Lowell


It is hoped that a true picture of Polonia in Lowell is presented in the exhibit, but objectivity is not always possible when faces in old photographs are so familiar and when programs and events strike such personal chords.  To the visitor who is not of Polish descent, the Lowell Polish Cultural Committee seeks to reinforce a deeper appreciation of the common experiences and achievements of the many immigrant groups represented in Lowell and at the same time, spark an understanding of the Polish experience.  To the members of Polonia, the Lowell Polish Cultural Committee offers this exhibit as a celebration of who we were and who we are.
