Holy Week : a novel of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising by Jerzy Andrzejewski( )

As armed battle rages in the Warsaw ghetto during the week preceding Easter of 1943, Jan Malecki, a Polish architect and cold, indecisive leftist, reluctantly takes in his Jewish old flame, Irena Lilien. Irena was a wealthy, bewitching beauty, but is now an embittered homeless fugitive with forged Aryan papers. Jan's pious and pregnant wife, Anna, is kind if condescending to Irena, and Jan's brother identifies with the Jewish insurgents. But Irena is informed on by the neighbor's acidly anti-Semitic wife

The appeal; a novel by Jerzy Andrzejewski( Book )

28 editions published between 1968 and 1991 in 4 languages and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story in this book is set in 1960s Poland and was banned in that country at the time of publication. A former officer of the "people{u2019}s militia" and a party apparatchik, [the main character] eventually finds himself in a mental hospital, persecuted by the Kafkaesque nightmare of being constantly spied upon by secret agents. Once an autocratic and suspicious administrator himself, he can be regarded as a victim of his own standards, but his naive faith in the party, which has survived all ups and downs, shifts responsibility mostly upon the system and its destructive potential. --what-when-how.com
Legends of modernity : essays and letters from occupied Poland, 1942-43 by Czesław Miłosz( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legends of Modernity, now available in English for the first time, brings together some of Czesław Miłosz's early essays and letters, composed in German-occupied Warsaw during the winter of 1942-43. "Why did the European spirit succumb to such a devastating fiasco?" the young Miłosz asks. Half a century later, when Legends of Modernity saw its first publication in Poland, Miłosz said: "If everything inside you is agitation, hatred, and despair, write measured, perfectly calm sentences ..." While the essays here reflect a "perfect calm," the accompanying contemporaneous exchange of letters between Miłosz and Jerzy Andrzejewski express the raw emotions of "agitation, hatred and despair" experienced by these two close friends struggling to understand the proximate causes of this debacle of western civilization, and the relevance, if any, of the teachings of the Catholic church

The gates of paradise : a novel by Jerzy Andrzejewski( Book )

58 editions published between 1960 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andrzejewski escribe esta novela utilizando la cruzada de los niños como contexto histórico (Cruzada de los Inocentes ocurrida en 1213, donde un grupo de niños y jóvenes pretendía liberar Tierra Santa). La novela fue una revelación incluso al círculo intelectual de la época, la razón es que Andrzejewski nos presenta los pensamientos de 5 jóvenes y de 1 sacerdote que inician la cruzada. Cada uno de ellos con sus dudas y sus ilusiones, se trata de monólogos donde se va clarificando la totalidad de la historia, como si se tratase de desenredar varias hebras que están anudadas entre ellas. Los personajes de Andrzejewski presentan argumentos, historias y personalidades tan complejas que se nos antojan como reales, una realidad de los personajes que bien puede aplicarse al pensamiento generalizado del momento que fue el que dió pié a la primer catástrofe dentro de esta época enfermiza y vergonzosa de nuestra historia. El título hace una clara referencia a las puertas de Jerusalén, el título y toda esta novela hacen una clara alusión al hecho de que la verdad es tan cruda que es la única capaz de matar la ilusión, y en el caso de otras personas es capaz de matar la vida misma
