Overview

In her memoirs, Helena Paderewska, wife of the celebrated pianist Ignacy Jan Paderewski, tells how she partnered with her husband to influence the course of history for their native Poland after World War I. Through his fame as a musician, Paderewski gained access to top political leadership and became an eloquent spokesman for the country of his birth, then divided among the empires of Germany, Russia, and Austro-Hungary. With Helena's support and collaboration, Paderewski succeeded in uniting the Polish American community and gaining the support of the Allied governments toward Polish independence.Helena's story represents a rare example of a woman's documenting the world of international politics during the Great War and its immediate aftermath. As Paderewski's companion, she facilitated and accompanied virtually his every move and was one of only several women present for the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. Her accounts are essential sources on the key historical events in which she and her husband participated.
