Friend in need.

Unfortunately I no longer live in Krakow so I'm not in a position to help.
But today I got a phone call from one of my ex students who has kept in contact with me over the years as I've helped her with her studies ect.

The lass herself is only 18 and today informed me that she had been beaten up by her father. After skyping her it looks most likely she has a broken nose and maybe a fractured cheekbone. If I was in Krakow I'd take her out of that environment and put her somewhere away from her family, unfortunately im not in Krakow.

Question is are there any centres or organisations that deal with domestic abuse within families in Krk?

I have no experience with such institutions whatsover but maybe it's worth trying - maybe they have places for people in need of a safe roof over their heads like your friend - I just don't know

A violent crime has been commited. I'm sure there are women's shelters in Kraków, but the cops should be the first to be informed. The fact that it's within a family is immaterial. You know the local cops can patch through a call to Kraków so what are you waiting for?

I don't think she is gonna report it unless someone can make her feel safe

Cops were informed, father told them she fell. Would have been some fall to leave those kinda marks on the face but nothing on the hands. I remember her father slightly from my teaching days in Nowa Huta, bit of a drunk but then again so are quite a few and it doesnt make them lash out.

Agreed. Her home is not a safe place so she needs to get out of there. Fast. Men who hit women don't do it just once. The girl might be experiencing terrible conflicting emotions, like "He's my daddy, he loves me really." She needs help and the police can at least remove her from her immediate environment.

She is in a flat belongs to a friend of mine. Her mum turned a blind eye, her dad is a rocker pumped up skin head. She would have asked for help earlier but she was scarred about her mum and little sister who she claims her dad doesnt touch. I cant mind what age folk leave school in Poland or i might have offered her a job in Scotland for a break.

Poor Girl.Can't she go to the Police so that they forbid her father to approach her ?

If that's true It's a typical criminal case, not some PC stuff for "social workers". I'm surprised doctors didn't inform police, I'm not sure but I think they are obligated to do it in such cases.

Are there any men's shelters in Krakow?

she had been beaten up by her father.

That's not enough information. Why? When? How? and If?

I am so opposed to violence that I will beat up anybody who isn't :)
