Marcin Szczygielski meeting with the source

Author(s): Marta Bolińska
Subject(s): Language and Literature Studies

Keywords: the Holocaust; WWII; narration; memory; Antonina Żabińska; Marcin Szczygielski
Summary/Abstract: The works Ludzie i Zwierzęta by Antonina Żabińska and Arka Czasu by Marcin Szczygielski are the examples of narration about the Holocaust. They differ both in their implementation of the narrative convention (although both books in question adopt the form of a first-person narration), as well as in their source values. On the other hand, the books share high historical culture and consciously undertaken considerations upon the tradition and history. Moreover, both texts approach the same topic — the memory of the Holocaust. The author of Arka Czasu openly refers to A. Żabinska’s Ludzie i Zwierzęta, in this way rendering the memoirs of Żabińska a valuable source material, which is worth exploring.
