architektki_przod_2

The stories presented in the book, are dedicated to six female architects. The included texts are trying to apprise the role of women, not only in shaping the modernist vision of Polish architecture and urbanism, but also struggle with still present stereotype of the patriarchal world of builders, in which the only “father of the work” remains still a male architect.

Essays about Diana Reiterówna (Barbara Zbroja), Barbara Brukalska (Marta Leśniakowska), Helena Syrkusowa (Rafał Ochęduszko), Halina Skibniewska (Marta A. Urbańska), Jadwiga Grabowska-Hawrylak (Łukasz Wojciechowski) and Anatolia Hryniewicka-Piotrowska (Szymon Piotr Kubiak) with equal strength present us both the influence of these extraordinary women on the Polish architectonic idea, and their often personal portraits.

Every described character in the book shaped the story of Polish architecture in a different way, and wrote down in it an original chapter. Choosing the side of modernism, they inscribed themselves in the history of Polish modernity, which we today discover and analyze afresh. The book, which is now given to the readers, is a very precious elaboration, emphasizing the meaning of women for Polish architecture. And also an inspiration for further studies on the achievements both of the characters described in the book, and also many others, who are still to come.

Transport beyond eternity

EMG publisher is pleased to present the third volume of the series „With head”: the Czech novel „Transport beyond eternity” written by František Tichý. The book was translated by Anna Wanik and the author of the illustration is Stanislav Setinský.

TRANSPORT OKLADKA 300dpi

František Tichý for his book „Transport beyond eternity” received in 2018 the most important Czech literary prize Magnesia Litera – the equivalent of the Polish Nike Literary Award.

Although the story of the novel was invented by the author, it was inspired by real events and people, including biographies of Petr Ginz, an extremely talented boy of Jewish descent, and Josef Jan Kratochvíl, a member of the Czech resistance. Based on authentic materials: letters from Kratochvíl from prison, texts published in the journal Vedem by the children of the Theresienstadt ghetto and Petr Ginz diaries, Tichý creates a touching and tense story of friendship, loyalty, sense of value and justice, while describing war and fascism force their way into the happy lives of Prague high school students.

The narrator, Honza, faces evil. After arresting his father, he feels responsible for his family, and after introducing regulations restricting the rights of Jewish citizens, he risks staying in close contact with his Jewish friends, Petr and Jakub.

Residents of Jewish Krakow

Residents of Jewish Krakow – notebook for reading

The EMG publishing house is proud to present the first notebook from new series: „Jewish Citizens of Krakow”, which portraits Polish Jews who lived and worked in Krakow. The texts contained in the notebook are written in Polish and English.

notes ŻOK

Before the Second World War, Jews accounted for about thirty percent of all residents in the city of Krakow. The Holocaust touched nearly every single one of them. Today, walking through the streets of Krakow, one might think that the only memories of the Jews that perished here can be found on the figurines with tiny grosz, the Polish equivalent to the penny.
This booklet is meant to honour the memory of some of the many thousands of Jews who lived and worked in Krakow. We start by featuring individuals who directly influenced the development of the city, including photographers, architects, publishers and lawyers. And we conclude with the first girl to own a bike in Krakow.
The biographies included here represent just a few of the 60,000 Jews that lived in this community. It is thanks to their numerous and invaluable contributions that we have the opportunity to experience Krakow’s wealth of economic, cultural and social offerings.

The partner is the Jewish Religious Community in Krakow.

NIEWINNI okladka front

Innocent

The EMG publishing house is pleased to present the second volume of the „With head” series: the Romanian novel „Innocent” Ioana Pârvulescu.

NIEWINNI okladka front

Post-war Romania, Transylvania, Braşov. Idyllic land of childhood, in which communism invades, and the memory of multicultural and multilingual Central Europe is kept only in the stories of parents and grandparents. A multi-generational home and its secrets, filled with imagination of children. Adventures lived with the books’ heroes Verne and May. An attempt to preserve innocent surprise and naivety in a world that will never be a synonym for durability and security.

In the old, probably seventeenth-century house, there are eight adults and four children. The house on Majakowski Street (former and future St. Jan Street) is not an ordinary home to Ana. It is the whole world. It stores stories from before the war, it is a scene of adventures that meet residents, it worries about each of them, and for Ana is also a friend and teacher, hiding many secrets from the past. That’s why when Ana draws him, the house becomes a human with eyes instead of windows and mouth in place of the door.

The events that will be discussed here took place in a different world – that’s how Ioana Pârvulescu begins her novel, with voice of the youngest character, Ana. Actually. It is a world without mobile phones, the Internet, laptops and tablets, a world in which children invent games and stories, using their own imagination, often inspired by family messages, readings and films. This „other world” is also the madness of communism, from which children are protected by adult pre-war stories, an attempt to preserve and save the tradition in a new, incomprehensible world.

My world was simple and repetitive, without causing boredom. Someone later told me that this is the definition of Paradise.

Ioana Pârvulescu (born in 1960 in Braşov) is a novelist, essayist, journalist, literary critic and professor at the University of Bucharest, where she lectures Romanian literature at the Faculty of Philology. She also serves as an editor in the journal România literară. She initiated and for over ten years coordinated in the Humanitas Publishing House a collection of world literature „Cartea de pe noptieră”. For the debut novel „Viaţa începe vineri” („Life begins on Friday”, translated by Karolina Brykner, Tomasz Klimkowski, Krakow 2016) she received the European Union Literary Award in 2013.

„Innocent” novel was honored in 2017 with the „Award of High School Students for the Most Beloved Book of 2016″ during the fifth edition of FILIT – Festival of Literature and Translation in Yass. The award was granted by a jury composed of high school students selected by teachers of Romanian language and literature in Yass.
