Marzi is a memoir written by Marzena Sowa about her life as a child living in communist Poland during the 1980’s. Her journey is shown through a series of stories; rushing to the store with her dad to get sugar before it runs out, playing with her friends in the hallways of her building, going to the family orchard to get fresh strawberries, and more. There were good times and there were bad times, but you always see the wonder and curiosity in Marzi’s eyes as she tries to make sense of the world around her. All the different stories come together to show readers what life was like growing up in her country.

Check out this animation directed by Stéphane Hernoux representing Marzi’s curiosity and determination!
