Polish Independence Day History
Independence Day in Poland celebrates Poland's independence after 123 years of foreign occupation and partioned land. In 1795, following the signing of Poland's Constitution, the first ever in Europe, Poland went to war with neighbouring powers and was ultimately divided up into three partitions: one under Austrian rule, another under Russian rule and another under Prussian rule. Finally, on Armistice Day, 11 November 1918, World War I came to an end and Poland regained its independence.
Independence Day is celebrated annually on 11 November. It became a national holiday in 1937 however throughout communist rule until 1989, the holiday was forbidden. It was reinstated in 1990 following the demise of communism.
