Janusz Wasylkowski (1933-2020) and Mirosław Rowicki (1953-2020)



Recollections of two extremely important people for the Polish heritage in Lwów and Western Ukraine who died in 2020. Janusz Wasylkowski (1933-2020) was born in Lwów, was a respected writer, aphorist, and screenwriter. In 1991 he founded the Lwów Institute and started publishing the Lwów Yearbook – a well-known journal in the scientific and literary circles, and above all among those dealing with the history and culture of Lwów. He edited the yearbook until his death. Mirosław Rowicki (1953-2020) was a Varsovian, but he devoted the last several years of his life to Polish-Ukrainian cooperation and work in the field of Polish culture in Ukraine. In 2007, he created Kurier Galicyjski – a bi-weekly published in Polish, initially in Ivano-Frankivsk (Stanisławów) and then in Lwów. He organized famous Polish-Ukrainian meetings in Yaremche. He was highly valued among Poles and Ukrainians. Insofar as "The Voice of Law" refers to the Lwów tradition, it could not fail to record the deaths of two people so important for caring for the tradition and culture of Lwów in Poland.
