The end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th was a period of increased interest in the developmental psychology of children and youths, and attempts to create institutions dedicated to children with psychomotor impairment. Among these initiatives, on deserves particular attention — the forgotten undertaking of Eugenia Lublinerowa and Dorota Zylberowa from 1908 — the Warsaw Institute for Un-brilliant Children, the first Polish school for people with intellectual disabilities. The issue of emancipation, clearly present in the lives of both Founders, and their guiding principal in creating this school, is particularly worth analyzing.
