Jaracz's Chair

  ul. Piotrkowska 152     17 Apr 2019

Unveiled on June 10, 2006, here’s yet another work from the hand of Marcel Szytenchelm. Melded from bronze this number depicts Stefan Jaracz (1883-1945), a distinguished star of the Polish stage. For years he served Warsaw’s Ateneum Theatre as director, as well as being a bit of a name in the theatres of Łódź. He survived wartime imprisonment in Auschwitz only to die months after liberation in 1945. This monument sees our man sat on a theatre chair, with three vacant spots next to him for the benefit of those who’ve just trekked it up Piotrkowska.
