Helena Paderewska: Memoirs, 1910-1920

Helena Paderewska: Memoirs, 1910-1920

Hoover Institution Press

The memoirs of Helena Paderewska, wife of the famous pianist and later Polish Prime Minister Ignacy Jan Paderewski, tell the story of her husband’s quest to bring independence to Poland following the end of World War I. She recounts how her husband used his fame and charisma to influence the leaders of France, the United Kingdom, and the United States, becoming a prominent spokesman for his homeland, then suffering under partition and occupation. Paderewska also offers a rare woman’s perspective on the vicissitudes of international politics during the First World War. She supported Paderewski at every stage, and was one of a small number of women actually present when the Treaty of Versailles was signed, granting Poland its independence once again. Helena Paderewska (1856-1934) was born Helena Rosen in Warsaw, born to a Polish father and a Greek mother. In addition to being one of her husband’s closest collaborators and advisors, she was a founder of the Polish White Cross, a humanitarian and patriotic organization whose nearly 20,000 members brought aid to victims of war.
