Eugeniusz Paukszta (1916 – 1979) was a Polish writer probably best known for his historical short stories and novels for young people. Our particular favourite is ‘Zatoka Żarłocznego Szczupaka’ (about a canoe camping holiday in Mazury) and ‘Znak Zolwia’ (about two hitch-hikers exploring and having adventures in Lubuskie in the west of Poland). Many of his works examine the attitudes of the newly established peoples of the so-called ‘Recovered Territories’ (the areas which became part of Poland after 1945).
Unfortunately none of his works appear to have been translated into English. Someone should most definitely do this!
