Summary/Abstract: R. Zawiliński belongs to that generation of Polish intelligentsia which towards the end of the 19th century set out to perform a research into dialects and folk culture in the Goral area in the regions of Kysuce, Orava and Spiš. During the ethnographic research in the region of Orava Zawiliński met with the most important Slovak poet P.O.Hviezdoslav. Their friendship which lasted for svereal years was interrupted by the political events of the 1918-20 period when Poland raised their territorial claims for these regions, including the poet´s native Orava. In his poem 28. júla 1920 Hviezdoslav raised his voice against this act calling it a treachery. Were these words addressed also to his friend?
