Languages of publication
In the article the authoress compares the stories of male and female asylum seekers from one of the refugee centers in Warsaw. Her question is whether they have their own, different way of storytelling. She pays attention to the aspects of the experience of violence that were important to her interviewees and the relationship between the reality of modern war and the cultural stereotypes of gender roles. She divided the stories that she had collected into two parts: first one discusses the narrations of individuals who were victims of violence, while the other part presents stories of those who actively participated in certain forms of violence. Finally the article discusses the strategies of narrations about those experiences, especially the difference in the way men and women tell their stories.
