• Faithful to my Homeland, the Republic of Poland

    It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Dr. Susanne Lotarski, a devoted leader of the Polish-American community in Washington, DC.

    Dr. Lotarski was an active force in Washington, DC for many decades, eventually serving as Deputy Assistant Secretary and Director of the Office of Eastern Europe, Russia and Independent States at the U.S. Department of Commerce. 


    A longtime President of the Polish American Congress Washington Metropolitan Division, in the past Dr. Lotarski also served as the Vice President for Public Relations at the Polish American Congress, as well as the Vice President of the Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences in America.


    In recognition of her accomplishments Dr. Lotarski was awarded by the President of the Republic of Poland with the Officer’s Cross of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland.


    Always visible in her work was her deep love for Poland and immense care for the Polish-American community.


    Her activism, strong will, and love of country will be sorely missed.


    To the family and friends of Dr. Susanne Lotarski we extend our heartfelt condolences.


    Friends from the Embassy of the Republic of Poland
