  • reason for leaving my country

    I left my homeland because there was nothing there left for me, no jobs, no money, no family, therefore, no way to survive. But the only thing that is making me want to stay is that fact that i grew up in Poland and it is the reason that i know everytihng i know today.
  • why i moved west

    I moved west because there were promises of riches and many jobs, and my family now lives hear so i can be with them, but i am worried about lving hear because if i dont make it financially i do not know how i am going to survive.
  • farmers

    When the i was serching for a job i was kindly invited to work with famrmers which also welcomed many other Poles, we associated with the farmer which helped us to get a good start to our life in America.
