About This Item

Kielce: Komitet Obywatelski Obchodu Tygodnia b. Więźniów Ideowo-Politycznych, 1945. First edition. Softcover. vg to vg+. Large quarto. 20pp. Illustrated black and tan paper wrappers, with black lettering on the front cover. Striking linocut illustration in black on the front cover.

This scarce publication was issued to coincide with the proclaimed "Week of Former Ideological and Political Prisoners", honoring citizens who were held as political prisoners during the Nazi occupation of Poland. The week-long commemoration was held between October, 14th and 21st, 1945, in the city of Kielce. Various events held throughout the week, including a classical music concert, and a fine art and poetry/music event, honored these individuals, and often included the participation of surviving former prisoners. All ticket proceeds from these events were given to the association to help these citizens, their families, and the families of those who did not survive.

The publication of this magazine is attributed to the "Citizens' Committee to Celebrate the Week of Former Ideological and Political Prisoners", with committee member Ludwik Koprowski credited as editor. The first pages includes introductory remarks, a preface, and a program of the week's events. The following pages contain various powerful memoirs and testimonies, contributed by various former prisoners about their experiences. Many of the contributors were members of the committee, and some list their former prisoner number. Among the contributions are two poems, one written by noted songwriter, translator and writer Miroslaw Lebkowski (1922-2010) and other by writer, playwright and poet Jan Maria Gisges (1915-1983), in what is likely his earliest published poem. Text throughout is accompanied by numerous reproductions of shocking b/w photographic images of Nazi war crimes and atrocities.

Text throughout in Polish.

Wrappers sunned and reinforced along the spine with japan tissue. Small stain to the back cover, and interior cover as well. Pages throughout all age toned but clean. Wrappers in very good, interior in very good+ condition overall. Wrappers protected in modern mylar. OCLC lists only one holding in North America.
