My interest in Jewish history and culture date back to early childhood and has a rather traumatic background – namely, a lot of information about the Shoah and the war. Having consumed such a dose of history as a child it was hard not to become profoundly moved by this subject matter.
For the past ten years I have been chairing a foundation called Nomina Rosae that I also established, which deals in history-related matters. I also run a historical theater and a historical dress reconstruction workshop.
Projects related to commemorating and uncovering Jewish history in my hometown of Nowy Sącz and the surrounding region are an important element of Nomina Rosae foundation’s activity. One of the projects we support is Łukasz Połomski’s Sądecki Shtetl program. We organize commemorative events, information sessions on Jewish culture and religion, open lectures, large education programs and workshops. Our activities include art initiatives inspired by Jewish culture – we create our own plays and films.
