Roman Brandstaetter Monument

  Wałowa 29     more than a year ago
Celebrated Jewish son of Tarnów, Roman Brandstaetter, was a philosopher, poet, playwright, translator, journalist. During his life he remained a strong advocate of Polish Jews writing poetry in Polish, and he became the victim of anti-Semitic attacks in the lead up to the Second World War. After the outbreak of the war, his travels would take him to LIthuania, Russia, Iran and Palestine.  A complex character who faced many ideological dilemmas throughout his life, his identity was shaped by a plethora of traditions: a cross-pollination of Christianity (he converted), Zionism and Judaism. You can find his calm and contemplative statue, bespectacled and with pipe in hand, on Wałowa 29 in the centre of Tarnow: "I WSZYSTKO DZIEJE SIĘ W SWOIM CZASIE..." "EVERYTHING HAPPENS IN ITS OWN TIME"
