Kleniewski Family

“A landlady is an owner of a larger or smaller property in the countryside. She is the mother and educator of the nation. She is a Polish woman who wants the moral and economic reconstruction of the Homeland. She is a worker who turns these ideas into action — be it by working hard the native soil, or by common efforts in the Union.” [From the December half-yearly General Meetings of the Landladies’ Union in Warsaw [in:] “Polish Landlady” 1926, No. 1]
