Summary/Abstract: The author discusses the history of Władysław Sebyła’s family in Kłobuck, where the poet was born and where he spent the majority of his early childhood (1902–1910). The text presents and comments upon the two most important traces of the Sebyłas presence in Kłobuck, i.e. Władysław Sebyła’s birth certificate and his mother’s certificate of death. According to the author, it is Kłobuck which inspired the “land of the poet’s childhood,” with the characteristic landmark of the windmill, located in the vicinity of his childhood home. The image of the windmill, in turn, became later one of the most important themes in Sebyła’s poetry.
