Chicago’s Joseph Conrad Yacht Club is sponsoring the lecture,"The Secret Identity of Columbus: Peasant to Viceroy in 33 days" to be held this Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 6:30pm, in the Royal Hall of the Copernicus Center, Chicago, where the short film “Kolumb jest nasz” will also be shown.

This controversial presentation by author and historian, Manuel Rosa, unveils the polemic identity of the famous Christopher Columbus. After the lecture, participants will be able to purchase an autographed and personalized copy of his book, KOLUMB. Historia Nieznana, published this May in the Polish language.

In his new book, Manuel Rosa takes us on a historical journey into the true origins of Columbus and his reasons for the 1492 Voyage of Discovery. While some look at the new theory with skepticism, others have bestowed on it considerable praise. His presentation at the Portuguese Academy of History, on May 16, 2012, had a house full to capacity with members of the academic community who later described his 21 years of research as "a serious look at the truth, well-substantiated and worthy of praise."

Similarly, his book (published in Portugal, Spain and Poland) received accolades from many Portuguese, Spanish and Polish academics, including Professor Manuela Mendonça, president of the Portuguese Academy of History, and Professor Joaquim Veríssimo Serrão, ex-president of the same organization, who wrote in the Preface that Mr. Rosa's work is a "serious and diligent look at Columbus’s life."

Despite all the attention that this rewrite of Columbus’s biography is receiving, Manuel Rosa did not start out as a historian. Born on the island of Pico in the Azores, he immigrated to Somerville, Massachusetts in 1973 with his parents and, like other children across the world, learned in school that the man who "sailed the ocean blue" was a peasant Italian without schooling. But in 1991, while working on the English translation of a book on Columbus, he became aware of the controversy over Columbus's identity.

Because of his Portuguese background and fluency in several languages, he immediately noticed something irreconcilable in the official narrative. Mr. Rosa realized the name “Christopher Columbus” and the Italian “Cristoforo Colombo” were mistranslations of “Cristóvam Colón,” the discoverer's original name. Overnight history became his passion. Since 1991, he has dedicated most of his free time and countless other resources to a scientific investigation into the life of Columbus. This historical investigation has taken him to the Dominican Republic, to Poland, and many places in between, in a relentless quest for the truth about the identity of the putative discoverer of America.

Mr. Rosa's sensational findings include documents revealed for the first time in 500 years and have been announced in major TV and newspapers worldwide, including the New York Daily and the Daily Telegraph and resulted in the publication of his two academic books in several European countries. He has lectured at numerous Portuguese, US, Spanish and Polish schools and universities, as well as historical societies such as Sociedade de Geografia de Lisboa, Lisbon, Portugal, Museo de Colon, Valladolid, Spain and Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture, Chicago, USA.

The organizers of a similar talk held last month at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth were impressed with the presentation of historical evidence indicating that the man credited with discovering America was not the son of a humble weaver from Genoa, Italy, but rather a nobleman born in Portuguese Madeira: a Prince, fathered by exiled Polish King Wladislaw III, a member of the Lithuanian Jagiellonian Dynasty.

“Christopher Columbus’ origins have long been shrouded in mystery—was he Italian? Spanish? Greek? None of the above: In fact, his father was a Polish king, argues Columbus expert Manuel Rosa in a new book,” wrote Matt Cantor.

"Will Christopher Columbus's picture soon adorn the walls of Lithuanian-American, Polish-American, and Portuguese-American institutions as well as private homes of people of this background?" questioned writer Henryk Skwarczynski. Mr. Rosa's research suggests that it should. Although the book has been translated into English, a US publisher has yet to take it on.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear about these history-changing facts as well as your chance to have Mr. Rosa answer other burning questions about Columbus’s role in the false discovery or America.
