Abstract

[When two publications about Romanies appeared on the Polish book market in 2000—Cygan to Cygan (A Gypsy Is a Gypsy) by Lidia Ostałowska and Cyganie. Z obu stron Karpat (Gypsies: From Both Sides of the Carpathian Mountains) by Piotr Wójcik—the Poles’ fascination with Romani culture unexpectedly blossomed into open discussion and public talks throughout Polish society. In newspapers, galleries, and private venues, the “Gypsy” issue became a hot topic. Both nonfiction works were aimed at eradicating the mutual stereotypes and prejudices cultivated between the Poles and the Roma, and were published to “wide acclaim.”1 Ryszard Kapuscinski, the preeminent writer among Polish reporters, stated that Piotr Wójcik possesses an extreme “wrazliwosé malarska i profesjonalne mistrzostwo” (a painter’s sensitivity and professional mastery), and Ostałowska’s reportages are written “z pasją i humanizmem” (with passion and humanism), revealing “zagadkową i fascynującą rzeczywistośé” (a mysterious and fascinating reality).2]
