Summary/Abstract: Andrzej Braun, a poet, prose writer and reporter – one of the most outstanding Polish authors fascinated by the life and works of Joseph Conrad-Korzeniowski, died on November 9th, 2008 in Warsaw. Andrzej Braun was born on August 19th, 1923 in Łódź. Both the date and the place of his birth were in many ways significant. His date of birth and his biography let us classify him as one of the “generation of Columbuses” (“pokolenie Kolumbów”). He was a younger friend of Krzysztof Baczyński, Tadeusz Borowski, Jan Strzelecki… At the same time, his home town of Łódź, a multinational and multicultural city, also determined his biography.
