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 ( 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.
