In conjunction with a one-day conference on “Catholic Activism Behind the Iron Curtain,” UVA’s Polish Lecture Series is launching a public exhibit on UVA grounds in honor of the centennial anniversary of the birth of Jerzy Turowicz, co-founder and editor for more than 50 years of the only independent Catholic newspaper to survive the entire Communist period behind the Iron Curtain. This is also the newspaper that launched the publishing career of the future John Paul II. Please contact Dr. Piotr H. Kosicki (kosicki [at] virginia [dot] edu) with any questions.
