Summary

From 2021, December 27th became a new National Day in Poland to mark the 1918-19 Greater Poland Uprising after President Andrzej Duda signed into law a bill instituting the new holiday in November 2021.

Andrzej Duda signed the new legislation in Poznań, the capital of the western region of Wielkopolska, or Greater Poland.

The National Day of the Victorious Greater Poland Uprising was approved by parliament in October at the president's initiative and will be celebrated every year on December 27.

The uprising took place in the wake of World War One, as Poland sought to re-establish itself as an independent state following over a century of partition between Germany, Russia and Austria.

The Greater Poland Uprising, which was one of the two successful Polish uprisings, ended in the triumph of Polish insurgents over the Germans. The uprising broke out on December 27, 1918, in Poznań (western Poland) after a patriotic speech by Ignacy Paderewski, the famous pianist and diplomat, who became the Polish prime minister in 1919. The city was liberated on January 6, 1919. Almost the entire province was liberated by mid-January.

Under the Treaty of Versailles, signed on June 28, 1919, almost the entire Wielkopolskie province returned to Poland.
