3D Revolution?

3D printer. Sounds like a part of the Enterprise ship. With the aid of that printer, astronauts generate spare parts on space stations and designers make furniture, which allows them to save a lot of material. Analogically, the automobile industry (incl. Audi and Jaguar Land Rover) produces more complicated electronic parts. Even greater progress takes place in medicine. 3D printers already generate e.g. prostheses and hearing aids. In 2011, surgeons from the University Hospital in Ghent, Belgium, performed one of the most complicated face transplantations in which a printed 3D model of the patient’s anatomical characteristics played a vital role. That is just one of many examples proving a 3D printer to be the primary tool in a successful surgery.

Heirs of Janina Gołebiewska found

Thanks to an invaluable help from Internet users who responded to our recent appeal, we managed (just before the time limit set by the Court) to find the nephews and nieces of Janina Gołębiewska: Zofia Poniatowska, Jadwiga Majdaniuk and Stefan Gołębiewski.

According the data gathered, the presumptive heirs of Janina Gołębiewska died in the 1990s, which will be shortly confirmed on the basis of their death certificates provided by the Registry Offices in Lublin and Łódź. We also try to find out whether Mrs Gołębiewska drew up a will or had descendants. Thus, we will be grateful for any information which may shed new light on this issue (fundacja@nowoczesnapolska.org.pl). In the meantime, we are looking forward to the Court’s decision concerning further proceedings.

Our sincere thanks go to those who support us in our struggles to release the legacy of Janusz Korczak.
