Norman Davies ”Poland in the Rockies hit on exactly the right formula.”
Andrew Nagorski – Newsweek ”If a program like this had been offered at the time when I was a student, I’m sure I would have jumped at the opportunity.”
Stan Oziewicz – Globe & Mail ”I’ve been to many conferences; this is the first that will stay with me forever.”
Katherine – Chicago ”I deepened my understanding of my heritage, forged new and lasting friendships, and was inspired to carry out academic research in Warsaw, Poland.”
Martin – Toronto ”PITR brings together some of the brightest and most talented young Polish-Canadians and engages them in a unique experience of knowledge, interaction and the exquisite surroundings of the majestic Rocky Mountains”
Nina – Washington ”PITR set me on my path for my career… opened up a whole new world to me that sent me to graduate school to study the post communist world and landed me at a job in the international affairs community, focusing on democracy assistance… I have contacts all over the globe ready to support my work. I grew as a person, a thinker and a friend.”
Judith – Cape Town ”I’m a slightly more uncommon PITR attendee – being neither Polish, nor an official student of the language, the country or the people. Call it an exercise in empathy-making and community-building, if you will; PITR connected me to a community of people dotted all around the globe whose common ancestry, language or location continue to intrigue me.”
