Languages of publication
This collection of memories depicts the background of the pre-war legal career of the well-known Polish civil law judge, Witold Święcicki. His experiences range from his family background and childhood; his exile to Russia in 1905; his studies; the beginnings of his professional career; marriage; and repatriation in 1918. Successive posts held by Witold Święcicki during the Second Polish Republic, as well as positions on editorial boards of legal periodicals with which he co-worked, are listed. However, more important is the description of the functioning of the judge’s house, in particular his limited social contacts, which were reduced to the group of former, current or future related lawyers. German occupation stories are sourced from his daughter’s coverage of events. A combination of historical events, which twice brought Witold Święcicki to the Bialy- stok district, are detailed. The memoir ends in 1944. The career circumstances for Witold Święcicki, were typical of the Second Polish Republic.
