A book by Margaret Zotkiewicz-Dramczyk ’83.

American Originals explores the Polish-American lifestyle with each chapter, including one written by Margaret Zotkiewicz-Dramczyk ’83 outlining the history and culture of Polish polka music through personal interviews and musician testimonies. Zotkiewicz-Dramczyk grew up in north Dayton’s Polish community and later discovered the rich Polish culture in Toledo, Ohio; now, she’s determined to preserve it. “Polish culture and music is much like a folk oral tradition: If someone doesn’t write it down, and the folks who lived it die off, it’s gone.”
