Poetic Obituaries: Marek [Skwarnicki] was one of the contributors

to An Invisible Rope: Portraits of Czesław Miłosz--I don't remember who suggested I talk to him.  This is what I had to say about him in the Contributors Notes:

Marek Skwarnicki--Polish poet, writer, and translator of poetry--was imprisoned in the German concentration camp Mauthausen in 1944. From 1958 to 1991, he was on the editorial board of Tygodnik Powszechny. He has written many volumes of poetry and memoirs from his travels with John Paul II, which he covered as a reporter. His correspondence with Miłosz is included in his book Mój Miłosz (My Miłosz).
