Introduction

This page is dedicated to a certain movie.
We are going to travel in time. We will go back to the second half of the nineteenth century, where there was no youtube, mobile phones, where literacy was among our heroes superior skill. The film is a sentimental journey into the world of history, the history of grandfathers and great-grandparents of Polish diaspora in Brazil.

It was here where he began his education, which he continued in junior high school in Opole. In 1867, fleeing the army, he went to Brazil.
