Summary/Abstract: This review of Monika Sznajderman’s autobiographical essay endeavours to show the techniques and the ethical value of reconstructing Polish and Jewish fates entangled in the history of the author’s family and her own dualistic identity. The review retells a story of Jewish and Polish relations during the war, and demonstrates how Sznajderman manages to avoid stereotypes in her work. Finally, it is emphasised that it is not the historical processes that interest Sznajderman the most, but rather the interpersonal relations.
