Initially I wanted to learn more about multicultural Konin, as I was constantly being reminded about this period by the existing material heritage in the town: the Lutheran tombstones at the cemetery on Kolska street or the impressive synagogue. My quest for knowledge led me to books by Józef Lewandowski (Cztery dni w Atlantydzie / Four Days in Atlantis) and Theo Richmond (Konin. A Quest). Both were revolutionary for me. With their descriptions of prewar Konin, the authors stirred my imagination to the point where I knew there was no going back. I realized that few other towns have such unique memoir resources and it would be a shame to not do anything about all this. I teach history in Jan Kochanowski Middle School no.5 in Konin, so the main field of my activism is within the school community. By teaching about the town’s Jewish past, I try to build up local site memory. I implement projects that allow young people to explore and commemorate Konin’s Jewish history – “Frames of Memory”, the play “Maria’s Dream” or “Reading Stones” for School of Dialogue.
