Oral history

The oldest inhabitants of Białystok

The people of Białystok speak: a multimedia archive of spoken history of the city and region. This is the first edition of our Media Gallery, a project the Ludwik Zamenhof Centre has been working on since 2011. Its aim is to create the first professional archive of spoken history in the city, that will comprise the accounts of the so called "witnesses of history". The first edition of the project includes some of the oldest inhabitants of Białystok. People who live here from their birth, or had strong ties with the city for most of their lives. We managed to convince "the interrogated" to reveal personal memories, accounts of their childhood and youth in the city, to express their opinions on important subjects and ground-breaking events in the history of the country, which reverberated in our city
