Among the many highlights for the Center has been the focus on documenting the stories of our living Polish Veterans especially those who served during WW2. Two new films will be offered by June 2012. The story of the Polish First Armor Division and the story of the Independent Polish Airborne Brigade. Utilizing both original film, photographs, memorabilia and veteran interviews, these will be the first comprehensive look at these units offered in English. Additionally, the highly commended film, "White Eagle in Borrowed Skies" telling the story of the Polish Air Force in WW2 is being rereleased with additional footage on DVD. This film was written and produced by Gerald Kochan, CMS founder, who is also producing the above new releases.
