BPilsudski Zory museum

A monument to language documentation

This newly unveiled monument in front of the Town Museum in Żory (Silesia) is probably the very first monument to Language Documentation in Poland! It shows the Polish ethnographer Bronisław Piłsudski with an Ainu informant and a wax cylinder recorder. The monument was designed by Ainu designer/sculptor Maki Sekine.
