Publisher Comments:

In Children of Zion, 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 wartime experiences. Rather than using traditional form, Grynberg has turned their voices into a large "choral" group. The children recall their lives before the war (most were well off), their memories of the war's outbreak and the arrival of the Germans and Russians, and their experiences after leaving work camps and the ways many coped with their lives as orphans.

Synopsis:

Award-winning writer Henryk Grynberg takes an extraordinary collection of interviews with young Polish war orphans conducted in Palestine in 1943 about their experiences and gives their stories "one voice". The cumulative effect of so many different voices discussing similar horrors is shocking and makes this book unlike any other work on the Holocaust.

About the Author

Henryk Grynberg (born in 1936 in Warsaw) is a Polish-Jewish writer and actor who survived the Nazi occupation. He was an award-winning novelist, short-story writer, poet, playwright and essayist who had authored more than thirty books of prose and poetry and two dramas. Grynberg, known as the “chronicler of the fate of the Polish Jews”, tackled in his writings the Holocaust experience and the post-Holocaust trauma.

Jacqueline Mitchell, a translator, lives in New York.
