A middle-sized city in the center of Poland, halfway between the mountains and the Baltic Sea. Neither rich, nor really poor, with a typical history of a region’s industrial capital which blossomed in the time of state socialism and lost that position after 1989. Such places evolve in a very special way. With advancements in technology and funds from the European Union, the look of both the city and the people has been changing. But still, both remain a medley of the past they come from and the effects of modernization, influenced by the local mentality.
The New Poles
Aged between 14 and 15. Come from middle-class polish families. Born after overthrowing communism regime. Raised in the age of the Internet and consumption. By observing New Poles one can see what changes in Polish reality, and what remains constant.
The block of flats at 4 Graniczna Street is part of the historic Za Żelazną Bramą estate in Warsaw. Throughout the 1960s, despite the meagre sizes of the flats, it was one of the most desirable addresses in the city. Those lucky enough to be allocated flats there, came mainly from education and culture-related professions. Most of them are now retired. Meantime, some flats changed hands. They are now popular with young people at the start of their professional careers.
