As armed battle rages in the Warsaw ghetto during the week preceding Easter of 1943, Jan Malecki, a Polish architect and cold, indecisive leftist, reluctantly takes in his Jewish old flame, Irena Lilien. Irena was a wealthy, bewitching beauty, but is now an embittered homeless fugitive with forged Aryan papers. Jan's pious and pregnant wife, Anna, is kind if condescending to Irena, and Jan's brother identifies with the Jewish insurgents. But Irena is informed on by the neighbor's acidly anti-Semitic wife
The appeal; a novel by Jerzy Andrzejewski( Book )

47 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in 9 languages and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story in this book is set in 1960s Poland and was banned in that country at the time of publication. A former officer of the "people{u2019}s militia" and a party apparatchik, [the main character] eventually finds himself in a mental hospital, persecuted by the Kafkaesque nightmare of being constantly spied upon by secret agents. Once an autocratic and suspicious administrator himself, he can be regarded as a victim of his own standards, but his naive faith in the party, which has survived all ups and downs, shifts responsibility mostly upon the system and its destructive potential.
Legends of modernity : essays and letters from occupied Poland, 1942-43 by Czesław Miłosz( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in Polish and English and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legends of Modernity, now available in English for the first time, brings together some of Czeslaw Milosz's early essays and letters, composed in German-occupied Warsaw during the winter of 1942-43. "Why did the European spirit succumb to such a devastating fiasco?" the young Milosz asks. Half a century later, when Legends of Modernity saw its first publication in Poland, Milosz said: "If everything inside you is agitation, hatred, and despair, write measured, perfectly calm sentences ..." While the essays here reflect a "perfect calm," the accompanying contemporaneous exchange of letters between Milosz and Jerzy Andrzejewski express the raw emotions of "agitation, hatred and despair" experienced by these two close friends struggling to understand the proximate causes of this debacle of western civilization, and the relevance, if any, of the teachings of the Catholic church
