Anna Julia Komorowska (born 11 May 1953) is a Polish classical philologist and former First Lady of Poland, as the wife of 5th President of Poland, Bronisław Komorowski.

Early life and education[edit]

She was born to Jan Dziadzia and Józefa Deptuła (real name: Hana Rojer[1]). Both of her parents worked for the communist Ministry of Public Security in post-war Poland.[2] Her maternal grandparents Wolf and Estera Rojer were killed in the Holocaust. The family later changed their name to "Dembowski".

Anna Dembowska studied at the Tadeusz Rejtan Lyceum [pl], and went on to read classical philology[3] at the University of Warsaw, graduating in 1977 with a master's degree.[3]

Career[edit]

Komorowska was a Latin teacher at a high school.[3] She met Bronisław Komorowski in 1970, when she was a member of the Czarna Jedynka.[4] They married in 1977. They have five children: Zofia (born 1979), Tadeusz (born 1981), Maria (born 1983), Piotr (born 1986) and Elżbieta (born 1989). After the introduction of martial law in Poland, her husband was interned. On 31 December 1981, she reached his internment camp as one of the first three women ever to do so. After the fall of communism in Poland, she worked for an insurance company for five years.
