The boarding house by Piotr Paziński( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in German and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this debut novel by the Polish writer Piotr Pazinski, a young man takes a train to a small town outside of Warsaw to visit a boarding house populated by the last generation of Polish Holocaust survivors. When his grandmother was alive, he had spent a great deal of time at this boarding house, and now he returns, as if to get one last glimpse of the past--to look at old faces and think old thoughts. Pazinski's narrative is at once dreamlike and hard-nosed, and it is structured with the haunting simplicity of a fairy tale. The Boarding House is a meditation on the sad, sometimes terrifying moment when living memory becomes history and the living become the dead

Eine Kutsche ist wie eine Straßendirne ... Reisekultur im Alten Europa by Antoni Mączak( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Von den Bedingungen, unter denen Menschen im Europa der Frühen Neuzeit Reisen unternahmen, haben wir heute kaum eine Vorstellung. Alte Reiseberichte übergehen meist Beschreibungen der Straßenzustände, die Unbequemlichkeit der Kutschen, die Trostlosigkeit durchquerter Landstriche? obwohl vor allem solche Umstände den Reisealltag ausmachten. Antoni Maczak lässt die Erfahrung des Unterwegsseins zwischen 1500 und 1700 lebendig werden. Er zeigt, warum man reiste, was man sich vom Reisen erhoffte und wie man durchs Reisen verändert wurde. Probleme wie die Gefahr von Kutschenunfällen, die mühsame Suche nach erträglichen Herbergen oder zuverlässigen Begleitern geraten in den Blick. Wir hören von widrigem Wetter und Gelände, wilden Tieren, marodierenden Soldaten und Wegelagerern. Uns begegnen lästige Bettgenossen und eilfertige Gastwirte, zweideutige Reisebekanntschaften und strenge Zollkontrolleure. All dies verbindet der Autor mit farbigen Porträts verschiedener Typen von Reisenden? von Bischöfen und Gesandten mit prächtigem Gefolge bis zum einsamen Pilger und zum Gelehrten, der sich aus Wissensdurst und Fernweh auf den Weg machte

Ryszard Kapuściński : a life by Artur Domosławski( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reporting from such varied locations as postcolonial Africa, revolutionary Iran, the military dictatorships of Latin America and Soviet Russia, the Polish journalist and writer Ryszard Kapuściński was one of the most influential eyewitness journalists of the twentieth century. During the Cold War, he was a dauntless investigator as well as a towering literary talent, and books such as The Emperor and Travels with Herodotus founded the new genre of 'literary reportage'. It was an achievement that brought him global renown, not to mention the uninvited attentions of the CIA. In this definitive biography, Artur Domosławski shines a new light on the personal relationships of this intensely charismatic, deeply private man, examining the intractable issue at the heart of Kapuściński's life and work: the relationship and tension between journalism and literature."--Page 2 of cover

Jewish fugitives in the Polish countryside, 1939-1945 : beyond the German Holocaust project by Joanna Tokarska-Bakir( Book )

1 edition published in 2022 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Focused on the struggle to survive by the Jewish Poles stranded in the Polish countryside during the Holocaust, case studies collected in this volume are based on research carried out at Poland's Institute of National Remembrance. Where possible, they are also complemented by Jewish survivors'testimonies dispersed throughout the world. There are at least two leitmotifs recurring throughout all texts: What are the social correlates of the anti-Jewish violence undertaken by Polish neighbours without German initiative and even knowledge? Are there certain types of social relationships more subject or prone to this kind of violence? What was the role of peasantry, social elites, and Catholic church in inciting and perpetrating it? Was this violence influenced by the Holocaust, or was it a separate form of genocidal violence?
