Planting Tulips in the Turkish Cultural Garden
Planting Tulips in the Turkish Cultural Garden
The Republic of Turkey was founded on October 29, 1923 - 94 years ago. Last year in 2016 the Cleveland Turkish community dedicated the new Turkish Cultural Garden

They gathered again one year later on Sunday October 29, 2017 to plant tulip bulbs in the Turkish Garden.

Though many think of the Dutch when they discuss tulips, tulips are actually native to Turkey. Tulips are the national flower of the Republic of Turkey with a history going back to its Ottoman roots.

The annual Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States.

In Cleveland, the celebration centered at the Cleveland Public Theater. There was Latin food, live entertainment, displays and activities throughout the day. A highlight was the parade, Skulls and Skeletons.

Tracing Your Family's Path from a Displaced Persons Camp
Tracing Your Family's Path from a Displaced Persons Camp
The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., has created a searchable database of information on the Displaced Persons Camps and the people who passed through them. Earlier this year, the Holocaust Museum partnered with the Ukrainian Museum-Archives in Cleveland to digitize the UMA's extensive collection of DP Camp periodicals produced by Ukrainian refugees from 1945-51. Working with Kyiv-based Archival Data Systems, researchers have scanned more than 75,000 documents archived at the Tremont museum, creating a resource that scholars and others will now be able to access.

Officials from the Holocaust Museum unveiled the new resource and its search tools at a special presentation in Cleveland, a city that resettled thousands of displaced persons. "Solving the Mystery: Tracing Your Family's Path from a Displaced Persons Camp," was presented at the Slovenian National Home.

We Pray the Rosary - Living Rosary DVD
We Pray the Rosary - Living Rosary DVD
Hail Mary, Full of Grace…

This DVD is a Living Rosary in the sense that over 200 people participated in saying a prayer. 3 bishops, numerous priests and sisters and a variety of lay people all said a prayer (Creed, Our Father, Hail Mary or Glory Be) that when put together combine to form the complete Rosary.

We hope that you will pray along with the diverse group of people on this DVD. They are young and old, different races and ethnicities, in Church and outside, alone and in groups. The prayers are said in English, but occasionally there is a prayer in another language. You may not know the language but will understand, and be able to pray along, because of the context.

 What is Cleveland's greatest asset?
Cleveland People

Sure we love the distinct 4 seasons (most of the time). And we love the great cultural and civic resources such as University Circle, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Cultural Gardens, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Lake Erie, the Browns, Cavaliers and Indians and so much more.

But it's the people that make Cleveland special. The rich culture, traditions and, of course, food from over 100 ethnic groups makes Cleveland a much richer city.

Welcome to Cleveland

Helping Monika

Over 1,500 of the daily visitors to ClevelandPeople.Com visit from outside the US. The website has been serving as a Virtual Welcoming Center to people from all over the world. We ask the appropriate Ambassador to assist us with specific cases.

For example, we received an e-mail from a visitor named Monika in Poland. The message was in Polish so we asked Polish Ambassador John Borkowski to translate for us.

Basically, Monika is coming to the Cleveland Clinic and is nervous. She doesn't know anyone or the language.

We sent Monika's information to many on our Polish (and other) lists and the response was terrific. Several organizations and individuals will be assisting and welcoming Monika.

What a terrific group of Cleveland People!
