“Mał y Gość Niedzielny” is the longest publishing periodic for children in Upper Silesia
with coverage countrywide. Before the Second World War it was published as the supplement
to “Gość Niedzielny” and it was the most important magazine for children in Diocese of
Katowice. The primary purpose of it was to promote religious, moral, literary and patriotic
education. The popularization of the model of a man who always follows the Christian ethic
rules is also present in the modern version of “Mały Gość Niedzielny”.
