Summary/Abstract: The present article confronts the author’s personal memories with the Polish mythology of the Eastern Borderlands as the lost land. The researcher, referring to the postmodern discourse defined by Marianne Hirsch, evokes a private experience of loss associated with the necessity to leave Lvov. The author’s individual narrative fits into the topic of the Eastern Borderlands dominated by the nostalgic image of the “little homeland”. The researcher, evoking Dzieci Lwowa by Helena Zakrzewska and Jechać do Lwowa by Adam Zagajewski, argues about the extraordinary vitality and importance of one of the key topos of Polish culture, whose implementation can also be seen in individual and at the same time private narration.
