Kashuby I Kaszuby - Reunited

Jim Blomfield

Does the genetic makeup and handed-down skillset of an immigrant people remain strong enough to provide concrete clues of their heritage after 100-plus years of isolation and fading memories? Are historical links to their homeland evident in their present environment? These questions are explored with black and white images from Kashuby, Ontario and the Kashubian homeland in Poland, on the 150th anniversary of the arrival of Canada’s first Polish settlers.
