An associate professor of history at Eastern Connecticut State University, Anna D. Jaroszynska-Kirchmann is the author of a number of articles on the history of the postwar Polish political diaspora, two of which received the Polish American Historical Association's Swastek Award in 2002 and 2003. The Exile Mission manuscript won the Kulczycki prize.
"The Exile Mission makes it clear that Polonia is far from being a homogeneous group, and instead is quite diverse and complex. How it became so, during the terribly tragic conflicts and upheavals within our civilization between 1939 and 1956, is the focus of this study." The Polish Review
