Bialystok, Poland

Eddy and I started our journey in Bialystok, Poland, the birthplace of Ludwik Zamenhof and Esperanto.

In Bialystok, we visited the Ludwik Zamenhof Center, where we met Ela. Ela is an active member of the Bialystok Esperanto Group as well as the librarian of the Esperanto Library in the Zamenhof Center. Through Ela, we met with the head of the Podlaskie Voivoideship Libraries as well as Andrzej, a member of the Bialystok Esperanto Group. Andrzej was a great guide around the city, highlighting important monuments in Esperanto’s history and showing us all the ways Bialystok has honored Zamenhof. With him, we were able to visit a children’s hospital named in honor of Ludwik Zamenhof as well as the Bialystok Esperanto Group’s meet space.
