The Polish Gray Samaritans

Sun Prairie Public Library

By the end of the first world war, the world had become used to the pillaging of Poland. Thirty young Polish-American women, called the Polish Gray Samaritans, changed that.  Their relatively unknown story will leave you in awe and inspire you by how much a small band of committed people can accomplish against great odds. The perseverance of these amazing women, essentially America's first peace corps, helped save a generation of Polish children in the midst of chaos, occupation, and war.

Speaker: Lindsey Hulstrom, research historian and college writing teacher
