30 Beautiful Black and White Portrait Photos of Barbara Kwiatkowska-Lass from the Late 1950s and Early 1960s

Barbara Kwiatkowska-Lass (1940-1995) was a Polish actress. She was born in Partów, a village in central Poland, then under German-controlled Poland. Although she received ballet and dance education, she eventually took up an acting career. After her debut role in Tadeusz Chmielewski's comedy Ewa chce spać (1957) she gained wider popularity in Poland. The role had been offered to her after she took the first place in a contest organized by a popular Polish cinema magazine.

In 1959 she left Poland for the West and soon starred in a few major films like La millième fenêtre (with Jean-Louis Trintignant) and Che gioia vivere (with Alain Delon). She played roles in several Italian, French and German films such as Krzysztof Zanussi's Blaubart (1983) and in Stachel im Fleisch (1981).

On 6 March 1995, Kwiatkowska-Lass collapsed and died from a brain hemorrhage aged 54, in Munich. She was interred in Kraków's Rakowicki Cemetery.
