April meeting in the “Café of Memories” 2015-04-22 , intergenerational integration

Maria Mączka, a wartime child, was the special guest of the recent “Café of Memories”. Born in 1930, Maria remembers the September Campaign, the bleak days of the occupation, hunger, persecution, fear. Her father was arrested for his conspiratorial work and he died in Auschwitz in 1943. Her mother was left with four children, whom she needed to protect, and later raise … Pupils from Upper-Secondary School Complex No. 4 and other workshop participants (who are learning how to record and write down memories) listened to this moving story.
