FROM THE EDITOR This is the on-line periodical “Social Work in Poland” 2018, Issue 2. The first issue of this volume is available at: https://e-pracasocjalna.pl/resources/html/article/details?id=199539. It is a special edition dedicated to the memory of Irena Sendler. By personally risking her life, she contributed to rescuing around 2 500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto. The ghetto, the largest of the ghettos established by the German authorities during the Second World War in Europe, was opened in December 1940 and completely destroyed in May 1943 after all of its residents were murdered. In 1965, Irena Sendler was recognized as Righteous Among the Nations. In 2005, The International Federation of Social Workers honoured her with the title The Most Distinguished Social Worker of IFSW. “Praca Socjalna” (Social Work) has been published for thirty-five years, previously as a quarterly and since 2007 as a bimonthly journal. It is the oldest scholarly journal in Poland dedicated to issues of social work and social assistance both in Poland and abroad. We are open to articles written by foreign authors who would like to publish their texts in “Praca Socjalna” that show approaches developed in their countries to solve global social problems. Once accepted, we publish the submitted articles translated into Polish. Our editorial policy is presented at: https://e-pracasocjalna.pl/resources/html/cms/MAINPAGE. The first volume of “Social Work in Poland – 2017”, published as a supplement to “Praca Socjalna”, is available at (https://e-pracasocjalna.pl/resources/html/article/details?id=185555). In this issue, from among the forty eight articles from the 2018 volume of Praca Socjalna, ten articles were recommended for publication by the Editorial Board as being of potential interest for foreign readers. Moreover, two criteria were used in the selection: the cognitive value of the article and its communicative message. In principle, articles regarding Polish issues were selected. There were however two exceptions, namely Hospice – A “haven” for terminally ill children. Model premises and practice in Poland and Ukraine by Iryna Drozd and Perspectives of Social Work in the 21st Century – From Debates at the World Social Work, Education and Social Development Conference – Dublin 2018 by Marta Mikołajczyk. The Editorial Board selected these two texts as examples of the insight of Polish researchers into the social problems in the wider perspective with the confidence that they may also be of interest to readers outside Poland.
