The history of Żelazowa Wola is inseparably connected with Fryderyk Chopin’s life. Is it this place, where the Polish composer was born 200 years ago. And despite the fact that Chopin’s parents moved to Warsaw when Fryderyk was an infant, the whole family was returning to Żelazowa Wola for holidays and vacations. The new book by Mariola Wojtkiewicz for the first time orders the history of Żelazowa Wola from the moment when Ludwika Skarbek bought the manor till the present times. The author on the basis of documents and sources tried to verify and explain some mistakes and wrong conclusions present in the conventional wisdom till today, enriching the content of the book with numerous new details and settlements. The book is written in a clear language and is enriched with lots of interesting pictures and photographs.
