The Daily Herald this week has been running a special feature on Chicagoland's Polish community. "The Path from Polska: Stories of Suburban Immigrants" examines different aspects of life for the 900,000 Poles who live in the city and collar counties -- still "the second largest Polish city after Warsaw," according to the Polish American Association. The series finishes Friday.
