Celebrations of the 65th anniversary of the Polish Association in Cape Town, one of the oldest Polish organizations in South Africa, was held on 22 November 2014. The ceremony, at which the guest of honour was the Ambassador of the Republic of Poland to South Africa, Anna Raduchowska-Brochwicz, brought together a large group of Poles and Cape Town’s Polish community members, as well as invited guests.

During the ceremony, Ambassador Raduchowska-Brochwicz presented Warsaw Uprising Crosses to families of South African pilots, who flew over Warsaw in August 1944 carrying aid for the Warsaw insurgents. Those awarded were Lt. Geoffrey Collard, Jacobus Erasmus and Terence O'Keefe. The Ambassador emphasized their heroism and service in helping a struggling Warsaw. The families of the pilots clearly valued the awarded decorations as they did not hide their emotions.

Subsequently, representatives of the Polish Association in Cape Town delivered their own speeches, during which they referred to the history of the organization and outlined its goals for the future. This was followed by the Polish Ambassador, who thanked the members of the Association for their contribution to the expansion of Polish identity, the cultivation of the Polish language – which is especially important for the younger generation of Polish immigrants – and the promotion of Polish culture and customs. She also stressed Poland’s achievements of the last 25 years, detailing the remarkable landmarks during this period, while strengthening the international position of Poland.

The activities of the Polish Association in Cape Town form an integral part of the excellent bilateral relations between Poland and South Africa, contributing to their further enhancement. The substantial Polish community living in South Africa is the link between the two countries.
