My interest in Jewish culture has its roots in my fascination with the history of my hometown – Seroczyn. My conversations with my neighbor whose stories were both vivid and authentic and who was able to convey many interesting historical facts, his passion and readiness to share his knowledge and – as some claim – my “gift of listening” inculcated me with a passion for studying all aspects of local history, which is reflected in my documentation work and collecting materials – especially photographs that evoke strong emotions.
I also started searching for information about my region in various sources and articles. Their meager amount encouraged me to write such pieces myself. They are published online on websites documenting Jewish heritage in Poland.
