Selected contents from this journal
Languages of publication
'Biesiada Krzemieniecka' was a periodical published by Polish émigré circles in France from 1852 to 1861. It was devoted to annual reunions of alumni of the Volhynia Gymnasium (re-named Krzemieniec Lycée) that were organised to cultivate the memory of their school and its founder Tadeusz Czacki. The periodical featured reports on celebrations to commemorate the school's establishment in 1805, emigrants' lives and Czacki's speeches. The idea behind the periodical was revived in 1977 in London with the publication of a periodical under the same name.
