“I’m here for one and a half year already, but I feel like it was much more…” – sixth fragment of Martha’s book

Book fragmentWhat is my current situation in prison.

I’m here for one and a half year already, but I feel like it was much more. Time passes very slowly, especially at nights. For time to pass faster I try to do whaever I can, and take what the prison offers.

I’m in a single cell, meaning I’m alone in the cell, so I feel safer. I wouldn’t like to share the cell for different reasons, among them thievery, lack of understanding, conflicts of different kinds, or bringing other girls to the room. I have a key to the room, and every time I go for dinner I close it.

Inmates are divided into three stages: basic, standard, and enhance. I am enhance, that means I can have two phone calls per day to my family or friends, every call for 6 minutes. I can also have two visits per week, thirty minutes each.

I work in the library and I get paid for it, + €3 per week (basic – €6, standard – €12, enhance – €15,60), meaning I have €18,60 per week.


We thank all believing people for their prayers

Martha’s tragedy has no political colours.
It’s beyond divisions.
It moves both believers as non believers.
It’s also beyond any religious differences.

We thank very much everyone for remembering Martha and her case in your prayers.
We thank very much people of different religions, Churches, and religious associations.
We thank for all sincere, selfless and free prayers.

Martha’s case is also a subject of constant prayers of Martha’s family

We’re grateful for sincere help to all non believing people.
In the face of human tragedy, solidarity and unity is the greatest support you can give.


The power of hope resulting from Easter

Easter is two events connected to Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ, whose name no one questions, and each religion only differ in their assesment of who he wasm and what role he played.

Those two events are:
1. The martyr, selfless death after an unfair trial and a scandalously unfair sentence
(As you can see, unfair trials, and grossly unfair sentences have a very long tradition)
2.Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

For believers, enormous hope flows from resurrection of Jesus Christ.
In the Holy Bible, a scripture recognized by many religion as a Word of God, St. Paul described this (1 Corinthians 15:12-14,16,17)

12 But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14 And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.


16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. 17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile

If Christ had risen from the dead then there is (will be) a resurrection.
If Christ had risen from the dead, then others will rise also.
If Christ had risen from the dead, then Csaba will rise from the dead also.
If Christ had risen from the dead, then milions of people who died will rise from the dead also.

If Christ had NOT risen from the dead, then… all Christian religions have no sense.

May faith in Resurrected Jesus Christ will be a source of enormous strength in waiting for resurrectiopn of every close ones, who died.
Someday this resurrection will take place…



Martha receives thanks from the Staffs of Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity in Ireland

Martha had donated two of her paintings for the Great Orchestra of Cristmas Charity.

Both paintings were auctioned, and the money gathered were added to the fund gathered by GOCC in Ireland.
Now Martha received thanks from two Staffs of GOCC in Ireland: the Staff in Gorey, and an official thanks from the Staff of Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity in Dublin.

Good Evening!
With a slight delay we send our official thanks from the Dublin Staff of GOCC, for your help during this year’s first fundraising of GOCC held in Gorey.
Thanks to the generocity of citizens of Gorey and the surrounding neighbourhood, we managed to raise €3 258,04  and by this add to the general raise in Ireland.
We thank you once more, and right now we invite you to cooperate with us in the next year.
P.S. As an attachment, we send thanks to Ms Martha. We would be grateful for forwarding it to her.


Marta Herda
The Staff of Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity in Dublin wishes to thank you from the heart for your involvement during our finale in 2018. The support we have received, significantly raised the rank and the prestige of the event.
During our finale we’ve gathered €84 549 for equalizing the chances in treatment of newborns.
The success of our project wouldn’t be possible without our fantastic friends and their help.
From deep of our hearts we thank you.
The Staff of GOCC Dublin

The family has already told Martha, that they received thanks for her support.

Highly recommended

Pole in Ireland: Forner or Full citizen?

Fellow compatriots in Ireland.
Martha’s situation shows how ,at least some, Polish people are treated in Ireland.
But Martha will eventually regain freedom.
Will she be released in Ireland or in Poland?
Will you be willing to help your compatriot?
Or maybe you believed in Irish propaganda, and you thing that she’s guilty, and she got what she deserves?
Maybe you are convinced about Martha’s innocence, but you don’t want to stand out, and show your opinion in this unfriendly environment? You have your work, some regular money, what do you care about Martha? Why risk? This will certainly never happen to you.

If Martha will be released in Poland – your situation won’t change and can even get worse. Irish system will harden, and will be even more ruthless to foreigners. Hope you will not experience it, even in the smallest matter. If it was possible to accuse Martha with an absurd charge, and it was pushed further, there will be no problem to push anything against you, foreigners.

What if Martha was released in Ireland?
You can be sure, that foreigners will be started being treated more seriously. And maybe, as it is in civilized countries, a translator will be obligatory to assist a foreigner, and at will to charge an accusation – an attorney (things Martha didn’t have in the beginning – neither an attorney nor the translator). GARDA will not start to interrogate you without a translator and without you consulting an attorney. And  most certainly will not try to use it against you at court.

Dear compatriots in Ireland.
We’re not hiding, that if you wish, you can help us a lot.
Help us, but also, help yourself.
We thank very much to all Poles living in Ireland, who support Martha’s fight for justice.
