Children of Zion

In this book, Henryk Grynberg takes an extraordinary collection of interviews conducted by representatives of the Polish government-in-exile in Palestine in 1943 and arranges them in such a way that their voices become unforgettable. The interviewees - all Polish children - tell of their experiences during the war. Grynberg has not used the traditional form, but rather turns the voices of the children into one large "choral" group. This technique gives the reader the impression of overwhelming sameness while paradoxically featuring the subtle differences in the children's experiences
