Drohobycz, Drohobycz
And Other Stories: True Tales from the Holocaust and Life After

by Henryk Grynberg
Penguin Books, January 2002

Henryk Grynberg is a novelist, short-story writer, poet, playwright, and essayist who has won many prestigious literary awards and is the author of more than twenty books. Here this chronicler of the fate of the Polish Jews delivers thirteen authentic tales of the Holocaust, including the riveting title story, which reconstructs the assassination of the celebrated writer and artist Bruno Schulz. In each of these stories, it is not only the devastation of the Holocaust that resonates so clearly, but also the trauma that endures among its victims and survivors today.

“The passion of the author deserves a large readership in many languages and countries.” - Czeslaw Milosz
