Search for: [Abstract = "Berlinek is the local name for a housing estate constructed during the Second World War in the Julianów district of Łódź to house officers and high\-ranking officials of the German administration. The Germans left Berlinek in haste in January 1945\; by February, Polish residents had taken possession of the apartments. In this essay, I reconstruct the image of how the new, Polish residents were moving into the apartments at Berlinek immediately after the Germans’ escape from the city, as recorded in those residents’ memory and imagination. The key to anthropological investigation has been provided by the accounts collected from persons who, being very young at that time, had settled at Berlinek with their families, as well as those who learnt about the course of events from the stories told by their parents or parents\-in\-law"]
