Janina Turek. Zapiski codzienne (Janina Turek: Daily Notes)

This is the first publication devoted entirely to Janina Turek, who lived in Krakow’s Podgórze district and from 1943 until 2000 kept her secret Diaries. The first part of the book is a compilation of texts that provide information about the author and her life, as well as academic texts by Joanna Kubicka, PhD, and Anna Pekanec, PhD, an essay by the journalist Mariusz Szczygieł, an interview with Janina’s daughter, Ewa Janeczek, and a reprint of a text by Jolanta Brach-Czaina. The second part of the publication carries a generous selection of reproductions of the Diaries while retaining the author’s categories, with an introduction and descriptions. The publication is the first-ever opportunity to allow the viewers a glimpse into Janina Turek’s notebooks and an overview of the idiosyncratic complexity of the entry system.
