New Belgian museum to honour Polish WWII soldiers
The Liberation Garden museum is to pay special attention to the role Polish fighters played in liberating Belgian and Dutch cities from Nazi German occupation. Poland’s Ambassador to Belgium Artur Orzechowski told Polish Radio that 27 Polish soldiers from Polish General Stanisław Maczek’s tank division, which was instrumental in the Allied liberation of a number of Belgian towns, were buried in Leopoldsburg. The city is also the site of the start of failed Operation Market Garden, one of the largest airborne campaigns of World War II, which saw Polish soldiers fight alongside British, Dutch, US and Canadian forces. The museum in Leopoldsburg is to focus particularly on Market Garden, which included the infamous Battle of Arnhem. It failed because the allies underestimated Germany’s strength. The blame was pinned on Polish commander Stanisław Sosabowski, who was removed as the commanding officer from his brigade. (vb) Source: IAR

2018 WAFCA Winners
2018 WAFCA Winners

As a film critic of medium-low importance, one of my most sacred duties is participating in the Washington Area Film Critics Association (WAFCA) year-end awards extravaganza. During this hallowed time of year, I watch dozens of movies and mine my own recollection of the good, the bad, and the ugly to determine what, precisely, the best films of the year were. At the end of this grueling process—this death march through endless stacks of DVDs, searching for the rarest pearl in an ever-increasing sea of muck—we WAFCA members nominate up to five films/people in each category. The five films/people who earn the most votes in every category are then voted upon by the whole of the membership, the winners are chosen, the press release is sent out, and blessed, blessed relief descends upon us as we put the exercise to rest for 11 months.
