The Club invites new members to discuss books in Polish.
The book for the meeting is Wymazana granica, Śladami II Rzeczpospolitej by Tomasz Grzywaczewski, published in 2020 by Wyd. Czarne. The book traces the non-existing borders of Poland from before WWII, both inside of the country now (in Kaszuby, Greater Poland, Silesia …) and outside (in Czechia, Romania, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania …). The author has found and interviewed interesting people who remember the old border as it was back then and the communities that ceased to exist due to WWII upheavals.
Tomasz Grzywaczewski is an award-winning journalist and a writer who ventured and has written books about such places as abandoned gulag railways in Siberia, West African countries, and post-Soviet regions that failed to establish their independence.
