Bozena U. Zaremba

Bozena U. Zaremba has served the needs of the Jan Karski Educational Foundation since 2013 in versatile functions as a project manager, as well as a writer and translator. She oversees the promotion and implementation of JKEF’s leading projects: the graphic novel Karski’s Mission: to Stop the Holocaust (for which she served as editor and translator), the traveling exhibition The World Knew: Jan Karski’s Mission for Humanity (for which she translated the text), and the close cooperation with Georgetown University’s Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics on the theatrical performance Remember This: The Lesson of Jan Karski and with the producer of the upcoming movie based on the play. She is a regular presenter at the Florida Council for the Social Studies Conference.

Her background is in writing, translation, and teaching ESL. She has contributed her essays and interviews to the Polish Daily News (Nowy Dziennik), Cosmopolitan Review, Polish-Canadian Gazeta, and—in Poland—Jazz Forum. She has published interviews with over 60 renowned international pianists, musicians, writers, and media personalities. She writes for the Chopin Society of Atlanta and serves as editor of its English-language newsletter, Chopin Notes. In addition, she contributes to Culture Avenue, an Internet magazine, winner of the 2018 Maciej Płażyński Award for promoting Polish arts and culture outside of Poland.

Her translations into English include What I Received from God and People: A Story of Helena Modjeska by Joanna Sokołowska-Gwizdka and Radiation: A Tribute to Maria Skłodowska-Curie, a play by Kazimierz Braun. In 2007, Ms. Zaremba was awarded a Civic Achievement Award by the Polish American Historical Association for her "Contribution to Furthering an Understanding of the Polish Experience in America." Her educational work on the Karski legacy was recognized in 2019 by the Florida Council for the Social Studies with the Agnes Crabtree International Relations Award. She holds an M.A. in English from the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland, and is a graduate of the State School of Music in Krakow, where she studied voice. She lives with her family in South Florida, where she enjoys singing in the local church choir.
