Józef Wittlin’s Spain

In my paper I focus on Józef Wittlin’s impressions about Spain based on some of his private notes and his unpublished manuscript Raptus Europae. These reflections were written in different periods of time: some date to the 1940s, when Wittlin crossed Spain towards Portugal in his exile, some others were taken during his visits to his daughter Elżbieta Wittlin-Lipton in Madrid and surroundings in the 1960s and 1970s. The ideas he expressed are contrasted and completed with some remarks from his daughter that can be found in her autobiographical work From One Day to Another.
