Pawnbrokers specialize in commercial goods such as jewellery and electronics. In Bytom – the “Polish Detroit”, a pawn shop run by Mrs. Jola and Mr. Wiesiek actually buys everything that people bring with them in urgent need. Perhaps the largest project of its kind in Europe – the scale of the activity is impressive – shows the condition of the inhabitants of a city that is becoming poorer as more mines close. Mrs. Jola and Mr. Wiesiek are trying to save their business, but also their relationship.
