Paulina Olszanka on grassroots response to the refugees in Poland

AIPA organised a zoom webinar on Saturday 26 March at 7.00 pm Melbourne time, (9.00 am in Warsaw) with the Polish-Australian journalist Paulina Olszanka, who is originally from Melbourne.

Paulina Olszanka has written for the Guardian, the Fairfax Media, the Economist, and is a regular contributor to The Times in the UK. With a background in anthropology and sociology, she focuses mainly on social issues and politics, although she has recently turned her attention to the war in Ukraine.  She was speaking from Poland to the Australian Institute of Polish Affairs about the situation in Poland in the wake of the invasion of Ukraine, the extraordinary grassroots response to the refugees, and the evolving refugee crisis within Poland’s borders.

Her webinar is available to watch on our AIPA YouTube Chanel here.
