My active interest in Jewish culture and history began the moment I started working as a school teacher. Textbook material about the shared history of Poles and Jews, my students’ questions and stereotypical thinking about the topic first encouraged me to read – I remember Irek Grin’s book Ze złości (“Out of Anger”); then I started sightseeing and pursuing professional training. And this I’ve been doing ever since.
I teach history and social studies; and naturally, my personal interests are in line with my profession. In wintertime, I love to watch good movies and in the summer I love to spend time in my garden.
My activism is always educational in character. Each year, I implement a project with a selected group of school students, consisting of workshops, a visit in the Regional Museum and a field trip to Warsaw or Kraków.
