In 1795, partitioned by neighboring empires, Poland disappeared from the map of Europe. Its citizens finally regained their long-awaited freedom in 1918, after 123 years of occupation and partitioning by Prussia, Austria and Russia.
On November 11, 2018, Poland celebrates its centenary of independence, with nations around the world showing their solidarity in various ways to celebrate along with her.
