Tadeusz Borowski I

Tadeusz Borowski was born in Bałuty in 1929. He tells about the pre-war period in Łódź and its Jewish community, as well as about Polish-Jewish relations: “Jewish Pole. Most Jews considered themselves Poles. The Jews were not some kind of monolith.”

We invite you to watch the next series of film interviews conducted as part of the multi-year program “Independent” for 2017–2022. This time, residents of Warsaw, Łódź, Vilnius, Nowogródek, Oświęcim, Mińsk Mazowiecki, Tykocin and Bliżyn shared their memories. They told about their Jewish neighbors, about the events of a common – and from a certain point of their own history, which remained in their memory.

The series of 10 interviews was prepared by the Education Department and is part of the activities of #MGWonline. The project was funded by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
