Summary"In Drohobycz, Drohobycz, one of our most highly regarded Polish writers, Henryk Grynberg, 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. Going beyond the age-old question of individual crime and punishment, Drohobycz, Drohobycz explores the concepts of collective guilt and the impunity of the twentieth century's two most genocidal political systems: Nazi Germany and the Stalinist Soviet Union.; With its profound investigation of bravery, baseness, and the vulnerability of human beings, this incredible collection is a critically acclaimed and highly anticipated contribution to contemporary fiction."
