On each Monday of this August, starting from this one, on Radio Opole, will be presented the biographies of five Warsaw insurgents-prisoners of Stalag 344 Lamsdorf. For attentive listeners wait questions and holiday gifts, including a voucher of 50 PLN for a Melex ride on the historical paths of the Site of National Remembrance in Łambinowice.
Irena Jurgielewiczowa, Wanda Traczyk-Stawska, Witold Pilecki, Zdzisław Maklakiewicz, Witold Kula. Those are the unusual characters, with a passion for life and a courageous spirit: a well-known writer, a psychologist with a social streak, a landowner who turned out to be a master of conspiracy, a talented actor, a history professor. Their fates intersected in one place - at Lamsdorf, today's Łambinowice.
It was to Stalag 344 Lamsdorf where Germans sent the largest group, almost 6 thousands, Warsaw insurgents who had been taken into captivity. The prisoner-of-war’s status provided them with legal protection and a chance of survival. Nevertheless, it also made them to learn how to deal with the new, harsh reality which was isolation. Their struggle gained a new dimension. From then on they had do face uncertainty, fear for their fate and that of their families, humiliation, tormenting hunger, ubiquitous dirt and vermin, overcrowding and, above all, brutal treatment.
