SCHOOL IN THE BIOGRAPHICAL EXPERIENCE OF THE GRADUATES OF H. MIKLASZEWSKA'S PRIVATE JUNIOR AND SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL IN LÓDZ
The paper is a part of the PhD dissertation on the memories of H. Miklaszewska's Private Junior and Secondary School in Lódz. The memory of the school is a concept which has its roots in the biographical research and functions as an element of the biographical memory of one's childhood and youth. This memory is described as affective, vivid, frequently referred to by French gerontologists as the 'memory from the depth of one's heart' or long-term memory. This is memory of the past. Frequently it is photographic in nature, full of colors, stimulating various senses like those of taste, smell or visual perception. The application of the biographical method in research allows for exposing the reality and presenting it in the way it is perceived by the persons analyzed. The analysis of the material resulted in the collection of material on the memories about H. Miklaszewska's School in which the Mother Superior - Helena Miklaszewska played a primary role. Thanks to her involvement and initiative the school made a significant impact on the lives of the respondents and determined the aims they were determined to achieve throughout their lives. These individual biographies functioned also as a background for the history, the respondents witnessed and created.
