About myself: Mila is a student of the Faculty of Polish Studies at the Jagiellonian University and Collegium Invisibile. She is fascinated by the issues of remembering the Holocaust in the Baltic States, especially in Lithuania. Listening to stories about local Jewish communities has led her towards oral history, from where she is quite close to genealogy. Stubborn and meticulous, she will not let her family fate be forgotten.
