In her contribution the authoress analyzes how two prominent Slovak dramatists Peter Karvas and Juraj Váh expressed, shortly after the end of the Second World War, their attitudes towards questions of identity, memory, time and space. Plays 'Return to Life' by Peter Karvas and 'Silence' by Juraj Váh, which are describing war experience, include elements composing the core of the Jewish post-holocaust thinking, which can be perceived as emblematic or even cliché elements. However, the afore-mentioned drama plays present in the Slovak context the beginning of an authentic experience transformation into a literary form. The authoress is from the aspect of literary-scientific analysis dealing also with motives of guilt, invisibility and deafness, as well as with the method of creating a talk and the function of silence.
