Miroslawa Glowacka, a nurse who is angry about hospital reforms, says she wouldn't bother to journey to Warsaw to join protests if her grievances could be solved by administrators in her central Polish city of Lodz. But the only way to win better working conditions--and improve patient care--is to get the national government to revise its health reform policies, she says.

Pope Benedict XVI has named a new archbishop of Warsaw, the Polish Episcopate said Saturday, filling a post from which the predecessor resigned after admitting he had cooperated with the communist-era secret police. Kazimierz Nycz, the 57-year-old bishop of Koszalin-Kolobrzeg in northern Poland, replaces Stanislaw Wielgus, who abruptly stepped down Jan. 7 at what was to be his installation Mass. Nycz is seen as holding an impeccable record under communism.

An austere Nordic design in glass and limestone was chosen Thursday for Warsaw's new Jewish museum -- a rectangular building with a jagged passageway. The Museum of the History of Polish Jews, due to open in 2008, will depict Jewish life, which flourished for eight centuries in Poland before it was virtually wiped out under Nazi occupation.

Lazienki Park is a civic treasure nestled amid the postwar Communist concrete of Warsaw. For the past 18 years, Urszula Maciejewska, a diminutive woman with short red hair and enormous energy, has worked as a conservationist in the park and now heads a staff of 40. They are largely devoted to caring for the park's magnificent trees, some of which, at least in age and size, are thought to be unique in Europe.

Poland's Parliament takes up the question of new parliamentary and presidential elections this week, with both sides of the now-divided Solidarity movement urging an early ballot. National elections in June, 1989, were only partly free, with Communists and then-allied parties guaranteed a minimum number of seats.

Prime Minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki said Wednesday that he does not want to see Soviet troops withdrawn from Poland until the issue of Poland's western border with Germany is guaranteed by a formal agreement on German reunification. "We believe that a new stage of history created by the reunification of Germany . . . must not be entered with any ambiguity regarding Poland's western border," Mazowiecki said.

Re "The Land of the One-Legged Man" (by Peter S. Goodman, Sept. 22): As a survivor of World War II in my native Warsaw, Poland, may I quote Christopher Marlowe, British dramatist: "Accurst be he who first invented war." Your cover story on Cambodia is yet another example. SOPHIE BINGHAM Laguna Hills

"Man of Iron," a film chronicling the birth of the Solidarity trade union movement, is being shown in Warsaw, Poland, for the first time since its premiere in 1981. The return of the film, which includes a cameo appearance by Solidarity leader Lech Walesa, paralleled the start of talks last week by the Polish government and the outlawed union on reform.

Two weeks after Hungary opened its border with Austria to East German refugees, arrivals in West Germany reached nearly 20,000 with no apparent end in sight. Austria reported more East Germans in transit from Hungary to West Germany. And another 900 East Germans are occupying Bonn's embassies in Prague, Czechoslovakia, and Warsaw, Poland, demanding passage to West Germany.

In 1939, German pilots unloaded their planes of bombs over my native Warsaw, Poland. Twenty-four hours a day until the town was conquered. Big deal--the young left with their military units and the old, children and women had nothing to fire back with. In 1991, the geography is different, but the killing is the same. A war is a war no matter who the enemy is and I don't care to watch it now on the news. SOPHIE BINGHAM Laguna Hills
