Maria Pawlikowska-Jasnorzewska - Polish - one of the poets featured at the Blackpool Exhibition

One of the poets featured in the Blackpool Central Library Exhibition to be held from 4th August until the beginning of September 2014 is Maria Pawlikowska-Jasnorzewska (1891 - 1945).

Maria is also featured in Volume 1 of "Female Poets of the First World War".   Why Maria?  Well, she spent some time in Blackpool at the beginning of WW2.

Maria became ill and died in hospital in Manchester, where she is buried.  If anyone knows where Maria is buried and has a photo of her grave, could they please get in touch.  Thank you.
