About this title


Popular notion has it that Polish Jewish writers, unlike their counterparts in Western, Northern and Central Europe, wrote solely in Yiddish or Hebrew. Yet between the two wars, Poland produces an elite group of assimilated Jews writing exclusively in Polish. Theirs was not an easy lot: torn between love of Poland and its literature and their own Jewish identity, they straddled a fine line between two cultural worlds - at once advocating acculturation while prey to virulent anti-Semitism.

About the Author:

Eugenia Prokop-Janiec teaches modern Polish literature at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow. She is the editor of the anthology Polish-Jewish Poetry in the Interwar Years. Abe Shenitzer is professor emeritus in the department of mathematics and statistics of York University, Ontario, Canada.
