Celebrating the 3rd of May Constitution

Celebrating the 3rd of May Constitution

Polish Cultural Center presents a commemoration of the first Polish Constitution enacted in 1791. This was the second constitution in the world, after the American Constitution and before the French one. It is known in Polish as the Constitution of the May 3rd.

The program highlighting relevance of an independent constitution will consist of opening remarks by the Honorary Consul of Poland in Seattle, Teresa Indelak Davis, and viewing of a documentary film Trzeci maja, czyli dziś, telling the story of the Polish Constitution and parties involved in negotiations leading to the Constitution Act on May 3rd, 1971, that included city merchants, nobility and the King of Poland. This event is in Polish.

Also, the Polish Choir Vivat Musica! created a YouTube video with a short program commemorating the Constitution.
