In an article published in 2000, Jan Tomasz Gross asked himself this question: How does one explain the fact that a quarter of a million of Jews who survived the conflagration of World War II went on to leave Poland? How was this development reflected in the Polish post-war consciousness? It is well known that in Poland the return from a camp or, more often, from the Soviet Union, did not translate for the majority of the Jews into integration in the country; for many of them the time of hostility and fear continued beyond 8 May 1945. The authoress is trying to answer the question asked by Gross by referring to the writings of some men of letters, Polish Jews living in Poland after WWII (Rudnicki, Wojdowski, Grynberg, Dichter), and examining the choices being made and the cultural and political survival strategy employed by their literary protagonists.
