Personal life

He is a son of Paweł Szulkin (1911-1987), a Polish physicist from assimilated Jewish family (grandparents were Idel Szulkin and Małka Frydzon[1]). Brother of his father was Michał Szulkin (1908-1992), a historian and publicist.

In 2013 Piotr Szulin demanded removing information about Jewish ancestry of Paweł Szulkin in his biography in the Polski Słownik Biograficzny (Polish National Dictionary). After Piotr Szulkin sued Polski Słownik Biograficzny, Civil Court in Kraków in January 2014 prohibited for one year (as a protective action) dissemination of volume of Polski Słownik Biograficzny, including a biography of Paweł Szulkin).[2]
