Portret Maria Ossakowska

Maria Ossowska


"If I were able to live my life again, I would choose the same profession once more. (…) Besides, science always was something more to me than a profession; it constituted a need equally as imperative and equally as elementary as hunger and thirst."

[From a speech during an event celebrating Maria Ossowska’s scientific career (based on the book: Maria Ossowska, o człowieku, moralności i nauce, p. 514)]
