Recently, Polish American Congress (PAC) President Frank Spula and American Council for Polish Culture (ACPC) President Deborah Majka have individually informed Pres. Storozynski that they fully support the petition and are requesting their respective Divisions and Affiliates to follow suit.


          The KF petition specifically requests that “The NY Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and the Associated Press, include entries in their stylebooks requiring news stories to be historically accurate, using the official name of all “German concentration camps in Nazi-occupied Poland,” as UNESCO did in 2007 when it named the camp in Auschwitz, “The Auschwitz-Birkenau German Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camp (1940-1945).”  A newspaper’s stylebook provides the instructions and guidelines, which editors and writers are expected to follow for articles to be published in that paper.

          ACPC’s Affiliate Presidents/Executive Officers are urged to disseminate this information to their members and communities and to appeal to them to go to the following web link and sign the petition: 


Note:  To display our cooperative intent in this vital Polonia issue, please identify yourself in signing the petition as an ACPC member or a member of an ACPC Affiliate.


Mrs. Deborah M. Majka, President

American Council for Polish Culture
