This film tells the story of Wrocław (Breslau) seen by the eyes of the first inhabitants resettled there in the post-war period 1945-1948. Their stories reveal not only their individual motives for moving there, but they also give an explanation of the broader, underlying social phenomenon of this mass influx of the population into Wrocław. The reasons were manifold: ordinary curiosity, government orders, and attempts to escape and conceal the wartime past.
Journalist, filmmaker. In 2007, he received his Ph.D. at the Institute of Media Education in Catholic University of Lublin. He is the author of books and films related to Lower Silesia.
