WASHINGTON, D.C. Ambassador Janus Reiter officiated at Poland's Independence Day celebration here at the Embassy of the Republic of Poland on November 14, 2006 (the official date is November 11th). The large gathering consisted mainly of Poles, Polonia and a delegation of visiting military officers led by Brigadier General Marek Witczak. The ceremonies were conducted exclusively in Polish due to the uniqueness of the evening's coupling of the anniversary of Poland's independence with the special guest speaker and the introduction of his related, fascinating book, written and printed in Polish.
