Historically religion has usually been a large part of civilizations, states, nations, and cultures. In Poland the case is no different; religion has been engraved in the culture and history of Polish people. Since the introduction of Catholicism In Poland has grown largely and more homogenously Catholic. It can be argued that this was manufactured at the end of the Second World War; through the holocaust and forced migrations by the Soviet Union. The significance of Poland’s strong ties to the Catholic Church is that the church plays a large role in the structure of polish society. The Catholic Church has served as a protector and promoter of polish culture during the times Poland vanished off the map, to the struggles for democracy. As Poland fought to rid them of Soviet influence and become a free democratic society with free elections that Catholic Church played a key role in helping the fall of communism in Poland. However from an alternative angle it can be said that art a music movements were also a key fundamental influence in the fall of communism in Poland. Although entirely opposite, both artistic expression and religion were two institutions of culture that both played significant roles in Poland’s rise to freedom. However it is clear from the work of many musicians, poets and
First and foremost, there are many different types of food around the world that were discovered and founded by many distinct cultures. The food I eat, some may eat differently. For instance, not many people know what redneck soup is. When they see it, they may think that what’s in it is weird.But to me it’s a red soup with vegetables and meat that we cook all the time. One of the other biggest foods I like to eat in our family is my great grandmother’s famous chilli. You can’t buy it in stores, and if you don’t wing it just right, it’s not the same. There are so many recipes that have been passed down in my family, both meals and desserts, and everyone loves the famous chocolate pie. This recipe has been passed down for a good while now, and when you taste it,it tastes nothing like store bought chocolate pies. Many people in Louisiana love to eat gumbo, and they cook it in many different ways. In my family, not everyone cooks their gumbo the same, but my personal favorite is my dad’s. He usually never measures any of the ingredients exactly, he just
Regarding my family heritage, a large part of my food identity is Polish food. My great grandparents on my dad’s side immigrated from Poland in the early 1900s. When they came to the United States, they
The first introduction of the city being the opening sentence, “At dawn in an outlying district of Warsaw, sunlight swarmed around the trunks of blooming linden trees,” (Ackerman, 1). This quote introduces Warsaw with a light description of a morning just on the outskirts of the city. This quote describes the look of the city prewar and gives insight as to how calm and untouched the city is. Within the city people filled the streets where markets were located, “... dozens of vendors sold produce, crafts, and food below yellow and tan awnings, the shop windows displayed Baltic amber, and for a few Groschen a trained parrot would pick your fortune from a small jug of paper scrolls,” (Ackerman, 22). The city itself was full of life, as were its citizens.

The outdoors of Poland can be strongly contrasted to the outside of Chicago. Towns can be very big, yet many places are little. Cars drive around a lot near the bigger cities, but in some there are very little cars that drive by. At first, it can be very loud and then it can become very calm and quiet. People are usually working during the day at the farm, in the fields or in the city. Children that are old enough go to school and come back later in the afternoon.
Poland is a country with colorful traditions, low poverty rates, and a dark history. The past and present events have molded and shaped this country into a unique nation with many possibilities.
From ancient Greece to the modern day, food has evolved greatly. Ranging from great Greek dishes to extraordinary dishes the modern day can’t seem to grasp the mentality that the ancient Greeks had while they made dishes fit for a king. Even though the inhabitants of Sparta ate, soup made of boiled pig feet the Greeks ideas of cooking made Greece a country known the world. The ways that the Greeks made their food has surpassed the standard of the way we view food. That standard is home to many of the foods that we eat today. “The Greeks also ate something called a teganites (τηγανίτης), which would have resembled a pancake. These were made with wheat flour, olive oil, honey, and curdled milk. They were usually topped with honey or cheese” (Kotsiris). Today when we make homemade pancakes, we use “eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, and melted butter” (BarefootWriter). The Greeks used much skill and effort into making food that our creations we take credit for may not even be our own.
