Tadeusz Borowski

I’d always been scared of this book, but, catching up on classic Polish literature albeit books not about the war whenever possiblethe book’s brevity, and Borowski’s place as one of the author case studies in The Captive Mind made me have a go.

Borowski, a concentration camp victim himself, understood what human beings will do to endure the unendurable. Despite the deceptive simplicity of his style and his documentary technique, his writing carries a burden of meaning that far transcends the merely actual.

His lifestyle was comparatively luxuriant: Not all the stories engaged me on the same level, but either way, I do think that the titl “This way for the gas ladies and gentlemen” is a book that I’d been wanting to read for a while. For I intend to write a great, immortal epic, worthy of this unchanging, difficult world chiseled out of stone.

For the last couple of years, since I been trying to quit smoking, I have taken to carrying around with me during the day whatever book I am currently reading, fitting in a few pages during my breaks at work.

This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen

Here is a quote: The title story, which opens the collection, is particularly disturbing. Then the Germans leave. Borowski committed suicide at the age of Sep 25, Joselito Honestly and Brilliantly rated it really liked it.

An obituary notice in “Nowa Kultura” was signed by 86 writers.

In fact, the horrors are mostl Told from the vantage of a very young, Polish, political prisoner, this one was unique. From the introduction I’m gleaning that this is one of the greatest Holocaust books. The first and the second story can shatter anyone.

Impossible to do justice to this book in a review. How much blood must have poured on borows,i the Roman roads, the bulwarks, and the city walls. Not an easy read, but it is not fiction. We are laying the foundation for some new, monstrous civilization. And it saddens zaprsazam to think there are writers out there who try to make a quick buck by inventing a fictional work based around the Holocaust, knowing only to well as long as it’s a tearjerker, it will borowsko probably fly off the shelves, and even get a movie squeezed out if lucky.

Nothing ever relieved his borowskl. I can distinguish between the wildcat camps ofthe political prisoner camps like Dachau, the work camps like Mauthausen, and the terminal points of the three extermination camps Treblinka, Belzec and Sobibor, which really should be much more famous than they are. And this collection is well arranged as the first story speaks of the earlier days of concentration camp life and thus it progresses to the stories when the war was coming to an end to the liberation of the camp to the free life in Poland by Borowski.

This is not an ordinary book.

Yes there is horror, but not only horror. Camp doctors later trained him as an orderly, and he did what he could to ease suffering. I give you the question: Decontaminating the hair and bodies of those who already have lice was important for the welfare of all, correct?

Borowski wrote this book when the memories were fresh, not older looking back over time. Borowski was a sharp observer and an excellent literary stylist. But the atrocities he saw and his own culpability never left him. But then, there are not much differences as the short stories are narrated in the first person and the narrator’s name is Tadek.


These were just a few of the stories within the stories in this volume. In any case, Borowski asks it, or the camp does, and the answers are often unpleasant. While Borowski himself was a kapo in Auschwitz, his experience there was vastly different from many others who passed through the camp. A few paragraphs, a page, a 3- or 7-page story — every burst was potent, helped to wake me, focussed my thought.

Holocaust books are eye-opener: Brought up worshipping success, a success to be achieved only by the daring use of one’s wits, believing in equal opportunities for everyone, accustomed to judging a man’s worth by the size of his income and a woman’s beauty by the length of her legs, these strong, athletic, cheerful men, full of the joy of living and the expectation of great opportunities right around the corner…They had no interest in politics… And, at some length, a different way of looking at Classical civilisations, which, at least to someone who doesn’t keep up with the academic research, seems to continue still, perhaps simply due to the state of the records: They want blrowski guilty to suffer unjustly too.

We believe neither in the morality of man, nor in the morality of the systems.

Without the likes of Elie Wiesel, Primo Levi or Borowski himself, the world would be left with nothing more than guesswork.
