    During the second World War, many families found shelter in the manor, including Czesław Miłosz and his future wife, Janina, who was invited by Kazimierz Wyka on the behalf of Turowicz. In 1944, he participated in the famous New Year’s Eve party which brought Goszyce down in literary history.

    In 2002, the ownership of the house returned to the family. Michał Smoczyński, Jerzy Turowicz’s grandson, looks after his grandfather’s extremely rich archive. In the spring of 2010 and 2011 two meetings were held in Goszyce to commemorate the journalist entitled Świat Jerzego Turowicza [Jerzy Turowicz’s World].

  • Goszcza

    Goszcza, situated on the rail route between Krakow and Warsaw, was one of the centres of the January Uprising (1863) and boasts an interesting connection to Joseph Conrad. An invitation by the writer’s friend Otolia Rettinger, whom he met in England and whose mother had an estate in Goszcza, provided an impulse for the writer to come to Poland with his family in 1914.
