Maria Konarska, from home Moraczewska, was born in 1946 at Piotrkowska street in Łódź. Her mother had a dress and elegant clothes studio over there and a flat upstairs. Maria lived there a short time because her parents moved a year later to Odolańska street in Warsaw and she spent her childhood in this place. She keeps in mind her childhood as very happy despite many tragic events that happened to her family.
