  I think you can answer all the questions. If not just ask your parents or grandparents.

  If they don’t know the answers look for the information in your school library or on the Internet.

  You will be experts on Polish history, geography and literature, I’m sure.

  By the way, do you know any Polish novelists or film directors apart from those mentioned above? Greetings from Daleszyce in Poland!
