Drozdowo

In this small village in the Podlasie region of what is now northeast Poland, the Lutosławskis had their family estate. Although Witold was born in Warsaw, it was in Drozdowo that he was baptised and spent his early childhood. As a small boy, he would sometimes sit on the lap of Roman Dmowski, the leader of the conservative national party, who sometimes visited the family.
