Event description

Description

Sperm swindle: how is it possible that one person has 200 brothers and sisters? What drove the anonymous sperm donors? Where can we draw the line between the privacy rights of a sperm donor and the child right to know his or her father? And why did this story happen in Holland?

The foundation 'Stichting Literatura' invites you to an evening with Kamil Bałuk. The young Polish journalist and writer is looking for the answers in his first book titled ‘All children of Louis’. We will talk with Kamil about his research, his first book, its popularity in Poland and the cultural differences between Poland and Holland.
