Summary/Abstract: You could say that Anka Grupińska liked oral history projects. A significant place in her creative activity was also occupied by Jewish themes. In "Still in a Circle", Grupińska combines her interest in the history of the Warsaw Jews with her consistent commitment to projects based on oral history. "Conversations with Soldiers of the Warsaw Ghetto" is a work that is by any measure unique, representing the beginning of its author’s public interest in Jewish subjects, and a source of self-consciousness-raising research. What is interesting is the way in which Grupińska speaks, how she asks questions, how she confronts different versions of events. The reflections contained in the article are complemented by commentary from Grupińska herself on her work on the book, as well as on oral history in general.
