Ebook In The Dietel Mausoleum

Ebook W mauzoleum Dietla



How did this e-book come about?

If anyone asked why we deal with the region where we live, we would mention the books written by ZbigniewBiałas as one of the reasons. Acknowledging the inspiration, we want to invite you for the first part of our journey across the world of his prose, to Dietel Mausoleum in Sosnowiec.In ‘Korzeniec’, the debut novel by Z.Białas, the Finnish governess named Emma describes a visit of her employer, industrialist Dietel, with his children in their huge family tomb that continues to dominate over the Sosnowiec Evangelical Cemetery at ul. Smutna. Feel invited to read and watch!

Text: an excerpt from the novel ‘Korzeniec’ by ZbigniewBiałas (Wydawnictwo MG, 2011). The photos were taken during a literary walk through Sosnowiec on the trail of books by ZbigniewBiałas organized by Empik within International Literature Festival Apostrof on 21 May 2016.
