Maria Jasnorzewska
Birth: Nov. 24, 1891
Death: Jul. 9, 1945

Poetess. Also known as Maria Jasnorzewaska Pawlikovska, she was born in Sopot, and was a member of the group of Polish poets known as "Skamander." Her first volume of verse was "Niebieskie Migdaly"; literally, this means "Blue Almonds", but is, perhaps, better rendered as "Idle Musings" or "Pipe Dreams." In 1935, she was awarded the Golden Laurel by the Polish Academy of Literature. When Hitler invaded Poland and the Second World War broke out, she and her husband escaped, firstly, to Romania and France, then to England, where he became a captain in the Royal Air Force. Unfortunately, she died in Manchester, just after the War ended. This is by no means her only memorial; in 1982, an asteroid was named in her honour. (bio by: Iain MacFarlaine)
