The article treats Tadeusz Borowski's stories from the collection 'Farewell to Maria' as a study of anthropological wrong and discusses the problem how the so far unnamed historical experience occurs to be the new incarnation of the wrong and took the shape of the commonness. The authoress puts forward the thesis that the wrong, which touched also Borowski, is revealed in his texts as a linguistic structure that proves the experience to be nonliteral. The stories speak of hovering on the verge of existence and the unnamed which emerges from the non-existence and again defines human presence in the world. In the language of free people it is the wrong, and in the now formed language of Nazi concentration camp people - an element of the commonness. Borowski unmasks the conventionality of the language of free people. The constraints of this language become clear-cut when confronted with the drastic events that have so far no 'conventional truth'.
