Tadeusz Pankiewicz (1908 – 1993) was a pharmacist famed for being the only Polish Roman Catholic to live in, and have access to the Krakow ghetto.
The Ethnographic Museum in Krakow features the many regional folk costumes and customs of Poland. I had no idea how many different costumes there were until I visited. Like any country there were the ‘nobleman’ class ones that were more expensive and ornate, and the ‘peasant’ versions that were of course more homespun and simple – but still colorful and embroidered. I think the closest equivalent I can think of is all the different tartans or plaids unique to different Scotsmen. The Scots will know which plaid belongs to which clan; I can tell they look different.
