Short biography
Zofia Nałkowska (n. 10 Novembro 1885, Varsovio; m. 17 Decembro 1954 en Varsovio) estis pola verkistino. Post la fino de la dua mondmilito ŝi kiel membro de internacia esplorkomisiono pri la krimoj de Germanio en Pollando (Główna Komisja Badania Zbrodni Niemieckich w Polsce) vizitis naziajn koncentrejojn. La literatura rezulto de tiuj travivaĵoj pri la holokaŭsto estas ŝia verko Medalionoj (pole: Medaliony). En ĝi ŝi detale priskribas la la terurajn suferojn de poloj sub la nazia rego. Ĝi komenciĝas per la sekva, ofte citita frazo: "Homoj al homoj preparis ĉi tiun sorton" ("Taki los zgotowali ludzie ludziom"). Tiu ĉi malampleksa prozaĵaro, publikigita tuj post la milito, fariĝis grava literatura teksto kaj daŭre estas multe legata en polaj lernejoj.

Zofia Nalkowska was born in Warsaw, the daughter of a famous geographer and scholar, and received an excellent education at home. She became one of the country's most distinguished feminist writers and produced novels, novellas and stage plays. Her second novel, Romans Teresy Hennert (Teresa Hennert’s Affair), published in 1924, a scathing social satire, was her first major success. At the end of World War II, Zofia actively supported the Communist regime in Poland. Her collection of short stories entitled Medaliony (Medallions) in 1946 dealt with eye-witness accounts of genocide in Poland as recounted to her. Her own personal diary, entitled Dzieniki, was published in 1975.
