Memories of Polish Jews are often marked by economics, in connection with their professions or the common stereotype of people focused on money. “Crowds, bustle, trade, scuffles – Nalewki” recalls the Survivor Wacław Izaak Kornblum (born 1926), author of the book ‘Memories. My version’. In the tenth episode of ‘The Message’ series, entitled There were shops, stands, kiosks, about pre-war Warsaw from the side of its windows and fairs, we hear from:
- Stefan Laube (born 1930) – a member of the Grey Ranks, participant of the Warsaw Uprising;
- Zbigniew Daab aka Kapiszon (born 1929) – a participant of the Warsaw Uprising;
- Sławomir Pocztarski (born 1930) – a member of the Grey Ranks, participant of the Warsaw Uprising;
- Jerzy Mindziukiewicz (born 1927) – a participant of the Warsaw Uprising.
Created from material recorded during the implementation of the project of the Education Department of the WGM “The Home Army on the tragedy of Polish Jews”, which is part of the program of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage – “Independent”.
From the interviews recorded at that time, we chose parts concerning the uprising and functioning of the Warsaw Ghetto – from the moment of its creation to its tragic end, as well as statements about pre-war, Jewish-Polish Warsaw.
The message is the main thought contained in someone’s statement – each of us can find it in a different part of the presented memories.
