In 1981 the journal 'Polska Sztuka Ludowa' (Polish Folk Art) published a survey on 'Ethnography - ethnology - anthropology of culture. What are they? What is their objective?'. The survey was a 'sui generis' generation manifesto issued by researchers connected with the editorial board of 'Polska Sztuka Ludowa' (today: 'Konteksty'), who at the time perceived ethnography as a 'science without boundaries' and one which 'opts for freedom'. This methodological breakthrough (which coincided with the proclamation of martial law) became the reason why, according to the author of the article, Polish ethnography lost its innocence. The presented text, written in the form of a recollection, challenges oblivion. Józef Czapski wrote that 'personal reminiscences rebel against the reduction of our past, which has been already pigeonholed by historians and devoured by statistics and figures in the order of millions to become abstract and almost meaningless for the next generation'.
