The article dwells on the attempts to establish institutional connections linking Polish Diaspora organizations in America and Europe, attempts having its roots in the 20s and successfully materialized in 1978 when Coordination Council of Free World Polonia has been created. Participation of leaders of the American Polonia, as the most numerous, has been a crucial condition for any deeper integration of various world Polonian organizations. Agreeing in principle, that a cooperation is needed, American leaders were reluctant however to give it any institutional shape – both because of fear of putting in doubt their loyalty to the US, and because a chronic lack of funds. The article shows how these reservations were addressed.
