The article describes the life and works of Stanisław Wygodzki (1907 – 1992), a writer, a poet, a translator of German and Jewish literature and a critic, born in Będzin. He had bitter experiences of the two totalitarianisms of the 20th century – nazism (as a prisoner of the Auschwitz concentration camp) and communism. Wygodzki was a writer of rebellion and social injustice, somewhat forgotten and banished, also in a literary sense. It was a conscious political choice of a writer, a prewar communist, who was engaged in the legitimization of communist rule. The tragedy of a committed artist took place over the years. The motif of a river, mentioned in the article and ever-present in the literary works of the Polish-Jewish writer and poet, may be compared to the unpredictable fate that communists faced. Exodus was also particularly tragic for Stanisław Wygodzki. The events preceding March ’68 made it impossible for him to stay in Poland. The writer left for Israel. Away from Poland where his literary works had gone through a metamorphosis, he did not feel good because of the lack of Polish – speaking environment. In one of the last reviews he admitted he had served a bad cause.
