Summary/Abstract: For the last several decades Schulz’s oeuvre has been a kind of “work in progress.” Although he has been long dead, more and more of his texts, drawings, and paintings seem to come down to us from the hereafter – both known from more or less credible testimonies, andquite unexpected and never before acknowledged. Certainly the most impressive findingsof the recent years are Schulz’s frescoes from Landau’s villa in Drogobych, discovered bythe German filmmaker, Benjamin Geissler, in 2001 and then partly removed to Israel to cause an international scandal. As it turns out, however, to find new traces of Schulz’s lifea nd work one does not have to penetrate into inaccessible archives or count on a miracle. In the Poznań newspaper "Nowy Kurier", an interview with Schulz and a review of his "Sanatorium under the Sign of the Hourglass" have been just found, both never reprinted or commented upon. The present paper changes this state of affairs.
