Children Born of War in Poland

After graduating from the Jagiellonian University in Cracow with an MA in history Jakub worked as a historian with an interest in oral history and biographical research, with a focus upon the documentation of contemporary history through the use of oral sources and their popularization. 


Jakub worked at the KARTA Centre, documenting and popularising the recent history of Poland and Central-Eastern Europe, and carried out small oral-history projects of his own. Jakub is also a founder of the Polish Oral History Association, and was its first president.

Jakub now works at the University of Warsaw (Faculty of Culture and Arts) where, among other topics, he teaches oral history.
