Paraboliczne opowieści o ukrywaniu się w szafie: Ta z Hamburga Hanny Krall i Daleko od okna Jana Jakuba Kolskiego
Parabolical Stories about Hiding in a Closet: Hanna Krall’s Ta z Hamburga and Jan Jakub Kolski’s Daleko od okna
Languages of publication
The paper compares Hanna Krall’s reportage and the film adaptation directed by Jan Jakub Kolski. I have analyzed the parabolic elements of their stories. Both the text and the movie are about hiding a Jewish woman during World War II by a Polish married couple in a wardrobe in their flat. I attempt to find out how the sense of the Krall’s reportage becomes ambiguous and unclear, characteristic to the belles-lettres. Kolski adapted the text that was based on another story. I try to analyze how this universalist domain (present in the reportage) was transformed in an artistic way in the movie. The parabolic elements present in the text and in the film make it possible to reveal the cultural archetypes connected to the Holocaust.
