Agora’s Publishing House provided PLN 24 thousand to the Ocalenie Foundation for the purpose of helping Ukrainians

Agora’s Publishing House provided PLN 24 thousand to the Ocalenie Foundation for the purpose of helping Ukrainians

Agora’s Publishing House has engaged in assisting Ukraine and the income from the sale of Oksana Zabuzhko books has been provided to the Ocalenie Foundation to ensure aid to people fleeing the war.

PLN 24 thousand is the amount collected by Agora’s Publishing House from the sales of two books – “Field Studies on Ukrainian Sex” and “Planeta Polyn” at Kulturalnysklep.pl and Publio.pl during the period of February-March 2022. The author of these titles is Oksana Zabuzhko, one of the leading Ukrainian writers, author of more than twenty books (poetry, prose, essays, philosophy) and the winner of many national and international awards. This amount was transferred to the Ocalenie Foundation, which supports, inter alia, Ukrainian refugees residing in Poland.  

“Field Studies on Ukrainian Sex” is one of the loudest testimonies of recent decades considered to be a demonstration of feminism and a vivisection of post-communist Ukraine. It is a novel which was highly controversial at the time of its release in 1996, and which has become a modern classic over time, while starting a wave of new literature of female writers known as “Zabuzhko daughters”. It is still the most often translated Ukrainian novel, provoking discussion about the complexes and situation of women in the post-Soviet society.  

In 2022 Oksana Zabuzhko returned with a new set of essays in the book “Planeta Polyn”, which is an invitation to talk about literature and historic complications, as well as a love letter to the Polish readers. The author is closely watching the current Ukraine while engaging into dialogues with other cultures. She translates the Chernobyl Prayer of Swietlana Aleksiyevich, says goodbye to Josif Brodski, watches a new film of Lars von Trier and talks to readers of her works abroad. 

Both books as hard copies are available at Kulturalnysklep.pl and in the form of an e-book or audiobook at Publio.pl.  

The Ocalenie Foundation, to which Agora’s Publishing House transferred the income from the sale of books, helps people fleeing to Poland from war and persecution. The organisation is present, inter alia, at the Polish-Belorussian border and at the border with Ukraine and provides support to people in detention centres. In Warsaw, Łomża and Łódź, they teach Polish, provide psychological and legal assistance, help children get around in the new environment of a Polish school, search for a house or work for refugees, helping to take first or next independent steps in our country.
