Summary/Abstract: I am not a Silesian, but from my earliest childhood I had lived in Silesia for several decades. In fact, things related to the region were not and still are not irrelevant to me. I graduated from the University of Silesia and worked at this university until the martial law imposition. When in 1982 I was expelled from the university with a wolf ticket, the Cracow environment of “Tygodnik Powszechny” and “Znak” helped me. There I happily found a safe haven.
