Charlotte West on Projekt

“‘Projekt didn’t appear out of thin air,’ recalls Danuta Wróblewska, managing editor of the magazine from 1956 until 1983: ‘It had an historical precedent: the interesting – perhaps even more interesting – pre-war periodical, Arkady. The publisher and editor-in-chief was a remarkable woman named Wanda Krahelska-Filipowiczowa. She was an activist for the Polish Socialist Party who organized and participated in the 1906 assassination attempt on Georgi Skalon, the Russian governor-general of Warsaw. She and a female friend threw a bomb at him.”
