Summary/Abstract: Having outlined the genesis and publication history of Stefania Zahorska’s play Dragon Street 13 (1944), Osiński interprets the text in the context of various historical events – the Grossaktion Warschau, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and the attitude of Polish exiled war veterans towards the Holocaust. Scholarship on the play is discussed in the light of recent finding and of reviews of Dragon Street 13 in the émigré press. Thus Osiński reveals the documentary value of Zahorska’s text as well as her original contribution to Polish émigré literature.
