The May 1901 in Wrze¶nia was the time to remember. Due to the intensification of Germanization processes the children from the local school went on a strike. Those who refused to speak German and use German catechisms were punished with the lash. The parents of the punished children who gathered around the school building stood up for their children. There were arrests and a lawsuit resulting in dozen or so people condemned up to two years of imprisonment.

The strike in Wrze¶nia had wide repercussions all over the partitioned Poland. It was discussed also in European journals thanks to the open letter of Henryk Sienkiewicz to the Emperor Wilhelm II.

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of those events Poczta Polska will introduce into circulation the new post stamp presenting the stained-glass window from the parish church in Wrze¶nia by Marian Turwid "The Christ Blessing the Wrze¶nia Children".
