Song performed by well known, russian choir "Alexandrov Ensemble" (some of which died in the recent plane crash)

Czerwone maki na Monte Casino - Chór Alexandrowa w Krakowie, Polska - YouTube

Czerwone maki na Monte Cassino (The Red Poppies on Monte Cassino) is one of the best-known Polish military songs of World War II. It was composed in May 1944 in Italy, during the Battle of Monte Cassino, on the eve of the Polish Army's capture of the German stronghold.
In early 1944 a German stronghold, dug in at the ancient Benedictine monastery atop Monte Cassino, had blocked the Allies' advance toward Rome. The forces of several Allied countries had attempted since mid-January to capture the German fortress. For a fourth major assault, which would begin on 11 May 1944, Polish troops were rotated in. On 18 May 1944, the day following the song's composition, the Poles stormed and captured the precincts of the Monte Cassino monastery. Later that day, the song was first performed at General Anders' headquarters to celebrate the Polish victory. The Red Poppies on Monte Cassino won popularity with the troops and was soon published by a Polish-American newspaper in New York. It would later be published in Poland. It was banned, however, during the Stalinist period in the People's Republic of Poland, when the government sought to minimize memory of the wartime Polish Armed Forces in the West

Polonaise is a Polish dance and is one of the five historic national dances of Poland. The others are the Mazurka (Mazur), Kujawiak, Krakowiak and Oberek, last three being old folk dances. Polonaise originated as a peasant dance known under various names – chodzony ("pacer"), chmielowy ("hops"), pieszy ("walker") or wielki ("great"), recorded as early as the 15th century. In later centuries it gained popularity among the nobility and townspeople

For me, the best adaptation is this one (church organ):

M. K. Ogiński - Polonez "Pozegnanie Ojczyzny". - YouTube

the dance itself is pretty boring, probably one of the reasons why its very often performed by graduates of middle/high school

When you use the words of others without giving credit to the author, it's called plagiarizing and is illegal.

Provide source please.

I know the writing isn't yours because it contains punctuation, capitalization, complete sentences, and coherent thoughts.

Cool stuff, even if it is just cut and paste from Wikipedia or wherever. TBH I'm paying big$ for data at the moment so I havn't watched the clips, but I did enjoy reading the background info. I'll check out the videos next tim I'm on some free wifi.

Good on you for sharing some positive Polish stuff. :fro:

Lol. All governments make some bad calls, so fair ping to claw.

You mean how Poland is trying to pass a law stopping people from mentioning Polish people's complicity in the Holocaust?
