Dr. Dobrosława Platt is Director of the Polish Library POSK in London and a literary historian. She received her PhD in Polish philology from the University of Wrocław. From 2008 to 2010, she served as head of the Ossolineum publishing house, part of the National Ossoliński Institute in Wrocław, one of the most renowned cultural institutions in history of modern Poland. She has directed the Polish POSK Library since 2011. She considers the legacy of the Polish Library POSK as crucial for the preservation of Polish culture, arts, and tradition in exile. Of paramount importance was the participation of the Library in the distribution of anti-communist books and émigre publications to People's Poland. Dr Platt thinks that the Polish Library POSK in London, from the very beginning of its existence when it serviced the Polish Government-in-Exile, functioned as the institution whose main goal was the independence of Poland which after 1945 meant the opposition to Communism in Poland. Dr Platt was not involved in opposition activities; nor was she repressed by communist authorities.
