Photographer's Note

National Independence Day (Polish: Narodowe Swieto Niepodległości) is a national day in Poland celebrated on November 11 to commemorate the anniversary of the restoration of Poland's sovereignty as the Second Polish Republic in 1918 from the German, Austro-Hungarian and Russian Empires. Following the partitions in the late 18th century, Poland ceased to exist for 123 years until the end of World War I, when the destination of the neighboring powers allowed the country to reemerge.
