The primary aim of the paper is the analysis of the unpublished short story In Kattowitz written by Thomas Bernhard in 1964, most probably as a result of his visit to the then-communist Poland. The paper reconstructs the origins of Bernhard’s work and presents the image of Poland shown in the short story. Also the main motifs and specific stylistic properties of the work are analyzed. The author of the paper also makes an attempt at answering the question to what extent Thomas Bernhard referred back to the motifs appearing in the unpublished short story in his later literary works.
