Mieczyslaw Abram Rotblit - photographer; he was one of the most promising and active members of the Lublin Photographic Society. In 1938, as one of eight members of the Lublin Photographic Society, he took part in the 18th Annual Exhibition of Polish Photography in Lviv, one of the most important national photographic exhibitions. Mieczyslaw Rotblit's fate most likely took a tragic turn. It is known that he was arrested by the Gestapo in his home at 10 Bonifraterska Street, and then placed in successive labor camps, from which he escaped several times. He probably disappeared near Warsaw. Very little of Mieczyslaw Rotblit's artistic output has survived to the present day. In his memoirs, Edward Hartwig said of him: "a very good technician".
