In 2011, a letter of Poles in Moldova “Jutrzenka” celebrated 15 years of its existence. The idea of people making modest at first, eight-page newspaper readers was to enclose Polish history and culture, the promotion of the Polish language, provide information about the most important events in Poland to Moldavians. In “Jutrzenka” is also reflected the Moldavian Polish life, that is increasingly underling its presence among the ethnic minorities.
The first issue of “Jutrzenka” was released on November 11, 1996. But before … At the beginning of the fateful autumn a few people gathered and started a conference on the issue in the Polish newspaper Bielce. In this little group, as it turned out – the founders of the “Jutzrenka” – there were two priests: Fr. parish priest and Fr Jacek Puc and Alexander Suchan and Polish language teacher Wanda Burek. In the first years after the magazine appeared on the cost of the founders. Since 2000, the “Jutrzenka” is supported financially by the “Assistance to Poles in the East” and by the Polish Senate. Polish Consulate also helps us.
Today “Jutrzenka” comes/ reach every month to nearly 600 customers throughout Moldova. The greatest achievement should be a permanent position, it received monthly, within 15 years of the Polish community – and beyond – the environment. In “Jutrzenka” we try to bring our readers the outline of the historical and current state of Polish-Moldovan relations, arouse interest in Polish culture and tradition, to encourage the search for their own roots. The newspaper has a definite contribution to the promotion of Polish language among Moldovan Polonia.
In drafting the “Jutrzenka” willingly participates young generation of Poles, also those who is studying in other cities and countries. Correspondent Tadeusz Gaydamowicz, one of the most known architect from Cracow, who in 2003 was given the title Senior Polish Moldova, has long been involved in creating the magazine too.
